Your love is so rich, so deep, and so vast that we will NEVER plumb the depths of it. It is too vast, too immense, and too wonderful! We scarce can understand or contain the weight of its glory and wonder!
Your love, so great that it determined to create a world in which sin was a possibility…and in fact would become a reality.
You love, so great that it planned to send your only Son, the second person of Your divine being, to be born into your creation, to become like your creation….YOU, an infinite and endless God…confined and reduced to created mass…so that You would live in the confines of this flesh, a perfect life, to die a horrendous, sinners death (for crimes you NEVER committed and NEVER Could have because of your holy and perfect nature).
Your love, so great that it took the penalty of MY sin, of OUR sin, and bore the weight of ALMIGHTY God’s wrath for that sin.
Your love, so great that it bore the breaking of an eternal bond of unity within Yourself to lay the sin and wrath upon Your Son…for me.
What wondrous love is this! What indescribable and unexplainable love!
May we, as your body, your church, your bride, may we KNOW THIS love…not merely intellectually, but in the core of our being! May this love be rooted in the depths of who we are! May this love change and shape us at the core of our existence!
And may this love be reflected through us to the rest of the world that they may know and see what a glorious and AWESOME God you ARE!
Abba, YOU ARE LOVE…may we know that love and may it shape us to look more like you every day as we immerse ourselves in it!
We love You, Abba Father! Thank you for your love for us!
