The Nature of Gods Love

I love this song. It touches on the wonderful nature of Gods love. It’s everyday because it’s always there. It’s familiar. It’s constant. It’s something you can count on.

I love being reminded of how available the love of God is. “Every morning I’m in it.. Every evening I’m in it”. These reminders never get old! I have a feeling that throughout eternity they will continue to amaze and inspire worship. Thinking about the love of God creates an immediate response of gratitude from the heart.

The thought that He would send His son Jesus for us is amazing. He takes us as His own and makes us sons and daughters. Add in the fact that he loves us tremendously, and it’s just too much to take in all at once! It’s incredible.

Is it right for us to view and experience Gods love in an “everyday” familiar way? Isn’t it supposed to be viewed with awe and trembling? I don’t think so. Not His love at least. In fact I think God designed His love to be approachable and everyday for us. It’s constantly there. It’s a part of our lives. It’s reliable. It needs to be close.

On the flip-side, Gods love is also extraordinary, eternal, massive and beyond our reasoning. But that’s because He is God! And as God, He chooses to make his love accessible to us.

Does Gods love seem far off to you? Does His love seem real? If not, in simple words ask Him to show you. He will respond, and you will be amazed. It is a request that He will never deny!

“..with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:14-19‬ ‭MSG‬‬
