Love Without Measure

I once wrote something about how God loves us and how dear we are to Him. I was not sure I should put it down on paper, but God knows what I meant. I wrote, "The only eccentricity that I can discover in the heart of God is the fact that a God such as He is should love sinners such as we are!" On this earth, a mother will love the son who has betrayed her and shamed her and is now on his way to a life in prison. That seems to be a natural thing for a mother. But there is nothing natural about this love of God. It is a divine thing. It is forced out by the inward pressure within the heart of the God of all grace. That is why He waits for us, puts up with us, desires to lead us on—He loves us! My brethren, this should be our greatest encouragement in view of all that we know about ourselves: God loves us without measure, and He is so keenly interested in our spiritual growth and progress that He stands by in faithfulness to teach and instruct and discipline us as His own dear children!

Verse

Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love. Jeremiah 31:3

Thought

The only eccentricity that I can discover in the heart of God is the fact that a God such as He is should love sinners such as we are!

Prayer

Dear Lord, Thank You so much for love so extreme that, to me, it seems so unnatural. But I know that to You, it is Your very nature.
