“Our God is the Protective Father, the Compassionate Mother, the Consummate Lover and the Intimate Friend. In fact, He personifies the best qualities of every human relationship.
You are His child and His children can never be beyond the reach of His love. Jonah proved, you can’t outrun God’s love. Lot bore witness that you can’t out-sin His love. Jacob laughs, “you can’t outsmart His love. Enoch finally left this world saying, “you can’t outlive His love. Jesus came to show, “You can’t outdo God’s love.
His love is a Song that you get on your mind and can’t stop singing. It is the Melody in great music, the Beauty in great art and the Plot in great literature. His love is the absolute Joy of a new marriage, and the abiding Comfort of an old one. It rests in the Anticipation of a kiss and the Thrill of physical intimacy.
His love whispers in the Laughter in a joke, the Flavor in a gourmet meal, the Calm on a pond’s surface at dawn. His love is the Shelter in the storm, and the rainbow afterwards. His love brings Him aggressively into the circumstances of our lives:
To the weary, He is Rest.
To the disheartened, He is Hope.
To the confused, He is Wisdom.
To the lost, He is the Way.
To the guilty, He is Forgiveness.
To the troubled, He is Peace.
To the scared, He is Courage.
To the spurned, He is the Great Lover.
His love for us can’t be diminished by your doubts, or stopped by your sins, or even repelled by your rejection.
His love for you is unconditional, unparalleled, unending, unwavering, untainted, unfathomable, and unmatched.
Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Greater than all my sin,
How shall my tongue describe it?
Where shall His praise begin?
All the superlatives of every language known to man bow in humble submission before Him. His love is the greatest, the strongest, the kindest, the gentlest, the lovingest, the mostest, the bestest….Oh, I give up! Words of human language will always eventually stumble and fall in hopelessness when attempting to describe the beauty of His love. I can’t explain it. I just can’t do it.”
