The love of God is so overwhelming.
It is the kind of love that transforms sinners into saints and calls back the prodigals home.
Nothing we’ll ever do will make Him love us less. It’s as perfect as perfect can be.
It does not love during the good times only but remains steadfast even when we’re at our lowest point, inspite the failures, wrong choices and what-have-yous.
Jesus continues to love.
He’ll whisper it to you while you’re walking, show it to you as you share His Word with someone in need of healing, He’ll write it in BIG letters up in the sky for all the world to see.
But the greatest demonstration of Christ’s love was on two pieces of wood, shaped as a Cross.
He didn’t only say it, write it, sing over us, shower us with gifts as lovers are wont to do, He did all those and beyond that…
Jesus gave His life. Willingly. With joy.
That, my friends, is what real love is.
Today, as His love overwhelms me that it just almost makes my heart burst, I feel myself loving Him more and more.
We love because He first loved us. 🙂
