By: O. Samuel
We thank God once again for His immeasurable blessings bestowed upon us. He is the faithful one and shall forever remain faithful in our lives. A new day has come, therefore let us apply the Blood of Christ once again in our lives. Today we talk about the love of God, and below is some part of the lyrics of “The love of God” hymn.
“The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell
It goes beyond the highest star
And reaches to the lowest hell.
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled
And pardoned from his sin.
O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.”
I woke up this dawn to enjoy this hymn and it was so wonderful. The description of the love of God here is so perfect. John 3:16 says, for God so loved the world…. The emphasis is on how God loved the world. Yes, He loved the world so much to the extent of giving out His only begotten Son to die for us. The hymn says It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell. I am actually lost for words. Beloved, the love of God is so great. Romans 8:35,38 & 39 tell us about how nothing on this earth can separate us from this love of God. We are more than conquerors with the love of God.
Sometimes, I get to question myself whether I am also expressing such love. The Lord requires us to love like He did. That is why He gave us His life, to live like Him, to express this love to the highest star and reaching to the lowest hell. May we love our neighbours in the same way we love ourselves. May our love cut across everywhere we find ourselves. I pray for more grace to cause us to love in the way God did. God bless you. Amen.
Please share a word with the world.
