The width of God’s love is past our imagination in its expression, with statements from the Bible that say things like, “For God so loved the world that He…” or that He is “not willing that any should perish…..” as well as the promise to remove our sins from us “……as far as the east is from the west.” PSALM 103:12 JOHN 3:16 2 PETER 3:9
In order to measure any distance, one must have a starting place and an ending. Therefore to grasp at understanding the length of God’s love can blow our minds with its beginning at the dawn of time before the creation and its continuing through the blessing of His people in the ages to come. EPHESIANS 1:3-4; 2:4-9
Any futile attempt to measure the depth of Divine love has to begin in Heaven from where the Word of God humbled Himself and came down to earth to become flesh for us, living a fully human life in difficult circumstances. Going deeper still to express His love, the Son of God gave up His humbled life, taking the place of a criminal, going through torture, execution and into the grave for us. Meditating on how deep this kind of love is can lead to our amazement because it really is measureless. PHILIPPIANS 2:5-8
The height of His love begins from Christ’s burial and continues through His resurrection and ascension; up all the way to Heaven and His position of authority, where He received the name that is above every name and where we are seated with Him in Heavenly places. The love of the Most High is higher than humanity’s sin and nothing can separate us from it.
LUKE 6:35 ROMANS 8:38-39 EPHESIANS 1:19-21 PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11
