"God's love to us immeasurable"
"...his great love wherewith he loved us..." (Ephesians 2:4)
"For God so loved the world, that he gave..." (John 3:16)
"...to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge..." (Ephesians 3:19)
It amazes me how much God loves me! After all I have done, and the things I am going to do...He is still going to love me!
I heard this example one time and I thought I would share it with you.
"How much does Jesus love me?"
"From one nail pierced hand to the other."
Even that statement does not begin to tell how much He loves us. He loves us so much! Why He would love me is beyond my understanding, but He loves me...and guess what, He loves you too!
"...to know the love of Christ..."
That is such a powerful verse! I am so glad I can have the love of Christ, it is so amazing!!
Go, count the sands that form the earth,
The drops that make the mighty sea;
Go, count the stars of heavenly birth,
And tell me what their number be;
And thou shalt know loves mystery.
No measurement hath yet been found,
No lines or numbers that can keep
The sum of its eternal round,
The plummet of its endless deep,
Or heights to which its glories sweep.
Yes, measure love, when thou canst tell
The lands where seraphs have not trod,
The heights of heaven, the depths of hell,
And lay thy finite measuring-rod
On the Infinitude of God!
-Thomas C. Upham
