The basis of all that exists, everything that we are and believe, and all of our human experience is love.
God loves every fiber of our being; He loves us for who we are. Jesus loves us when we struggle, when we are broken, and when we fail – no matter our circumstance He always loves us. There is comfort in the fact that in Christ we do not have to act or behave a certain way, as the love of God engulfs us.
The love of God is not affected by our past, and He does not hold our failings against us. With all our defects, imperfections, and flaws the love of God rises to meet our each and every need. The love of God will never remind us of our past shortcomings and disappointments as His love is constant in all situations. His love never falters, waivers or fails.
There are no limits to God’s love. With the only true love in existence His love will never say, “I do not love you any more”. Not only is He in love with us, His love is in us, placed inside our hearts and souls by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Human love is full of tragedy and failure. Our limited understanding of love is based on our personal circumstances. We are born with an innate desire to be loved, placed in our soul and spirit by God. In the human experience, we spend our live searching for love, finding love, or being broken by love. Only in Christ by His grace can we find the love our soul desperately wants and needs. We cannot measure love by our human experience because we as humans fail. As we find ourselves broken by the frailty of our mortal love, we will find that the love of God is our healing.
God’s love tells us, “I love you for who you are, not for your accomplishments or what you will become”. Having the assurance that His love is infinite means we can bare every fiber of our inner soul to Him, even the strange, twisted, messed-up pieces of ourselves without the fear of being rejected. In the human element we strive to improve ourselves so that we can be the best for someone to love us and to give our best love in return. But in Christ, it is in our failings, fallings, and in our frailty that His love is purposed, as the grace of God explodes with love saturating, inundating and marinating our hearts. It is in our weakness that His love makes us strong.
He loves you for you, and that love will never change. His love will comfort our every heartache, and heal the brokenness in each and every one of us.
The following words were written on the walls of a small, narrow room in an American insane asylum by a man who was said to be demented. These deep, meaningful and profound lines were discovered when they buried him. The spirit knows what the flesh cannot grasp.
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
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure, How measureless and strong.
It shall forevermore endure – The saints’ and angels’ song.
Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.
