God's Amazing Love

Date: 28-Feb-2019 | Author: Pastor Norman Rawlings | Comments: 0

In Ephesians 3:18 Paul prayed for the Christians in Ephesus that they would be able to comprehend the width, length, depth and height of God's love. That actually seems impossible to comprehend because it is so vast.

This love is extended to everyone and no one is too far away to be included. “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love” (1 John 4:8; KJV). Paul goes on in verse 19 of Ephesians 3 to pray that the Ephesians would know the love of Christ; the word "know" actually means know by experience, not just head knowledge.

If we feel like we are unworthy of being loved by God we only have to read that famous verse in the gospel by the apostle John, where we are reminded that God gave his only son for us all (the world) and that if we believe in him, we will have eternal life (John 3:16). If that is not convincing enough, then consider what the prophet Jeremiah had to say: “The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love” (Jer 31:3).

In Jesus’ prayer for all those who believed in him he said that God the Father loved us as he loved Jesus (John 17:23).

As a final note let us be reminded that nothing will ever separate us from God’s love: "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Rom 8:38-39). Amen.
