                                       "God is Love" [1 John 4:8.]

How good is it to be reminded of God's love?

This is not just a "straight" love, "general" love, "adequate" love, or a "reasonable" love,

His love for you is a ....

                        

 "For God so Loved the World that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have Everlasting life." [John 3:16.]

Paul said  "...He loved me and gave Himself for me" [Galatians 2:20.] and wrote  "And to know the Love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God" [Ephesians 3:19.]

The following Hymn is a beautiful expression of the phrase in Ephesians 3:19. of Christ's love "Which Passeth Knowledge".

  • 1. It passeth knowledge, that dear love of Thine,
    My Savior, Jesus; yet this soul of mine
    Would of Thy love in all its breadth and length,
    Its height and depth, its everlasting strength,
    Know more and more.
  • 2. It passeth telling, that dear love of Thine,
    My Savior, Jesus; yet these lips of mine
    Would fain proclaim to sinners, far and near,
    A love which can remove all guilty fear,
    And love beget.
  • 3. It passeth praises, that dear love of Thine,
    My Savior, Jesus; yet this heart of mine
    Would sing that love, so full, so rich, so free,
    Which brings a rebel sinner, such as me,
    Nigh unto God.
  • 4. But though I cannot sing, or tell, or know
    The fullness of Thy love, while here below,
    My empty vessel I may freely bring;
    O Thou, who art of love the living spring,
    My vessel fill.
  • 5. I am an empty vessel-not one thought
    Or look of love to Thee I've ever brought;
    Yet I may come, and come again to Thee,
    With this the empty sinner's only plea,
    Thou lovest me.
  • 6. Oh, fill me, Jesus, Savior, with Thy love!
    Lead, lead me to the living fount above;
    Thither may I, in simple faith draw nigh,
    And never to another fountain fly,
    But unto Thee.
  • 7. Lord Jesus, when Thee face to face I see,
    When on Thy lofty throne I sit with Thee,
    Then of Thy love, in all its breadth and length,
    Its height and depth, its everlasting strength,
    My soul shall sing.

 

Be encouraged, Jesus loves you more than you know, but how exciting that we can get to know this Love more and yet it "passeth knowledge" - like a mighty river which cannot be measured in its endless power and flow.

Jesus Loves You.

      God Bless.
