Was reading this this morning, and it really struck me, after all these years, and years to come, will we ever comprehend the way in which God loves us? We can make all the studies of as many Bible versus and write academic paper after paper, yet, we still fall short of understanding how, what and why. This in itself, is a miracle, don’t you think?
Many years ago, a man living in an insane asylum died and was carried to his grave. When they were cleaning out his room they found some words written on the patient’s wall. This is what he had written …
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
These amazing words were eventually incorporated as a verse in a well-known hymn about the love of God.
It is one thing to know that “God is love” and quite another to know that God loves you. If you could only grasp how much God loves you, it could change your life … and provide a strong foundation for you to have what it takes to truly love others.
The question I’d like to ask you today is not, “How much do you love God?” … but “Do you realize how much God loves you?”
God’s love … think about it.
