WE FOUND LOVE THAT NEVER RUNS DRY
FROM THE DEPTHS TO THE SKY
(Your Love Goes On)

“May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to ​​​understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”
Ephesians 3:19-20(NLT)

“What is the one problem that plagues more people than any other?”

When Billy Graham, the famous evangelist, was asked this question he replied with just one word: “Loneliness”.

Even Mother Theresa herself said, “The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.”

As human beings we are shaped and defined by what we love and by those who love us.

It’s the ‘water’ that helps us grow & live.

But our love can only go so far… we are human beings after all. We have limits, we have faults, and even on our best day sometimes our love still runs low. And what is the result of this love-drought?

Nasty words are spoken. We say things we don’t mean.
Brokenness. Hurt. Isolation.
Loneliness.

The Bible talks a lot about love. It describes God’s love as having limitless width, endless length, immeasurable depth, and infinite height. God’s love is so immense it covers every aspect of our lives, from the depth of our sin, to well beyond the height of all human understanding.

So what does this love have to do with us?

We were created to love because we were created in the image of Love Himself. The Bible says in 1 John 4:8 that God is love, and if we want to seek love, REAL LOVE, then we are to seek Him.

Through Jesus, we have access to a love that will never run dry & that will never fall short.

There is no such thing as a love-drought with God!! In fact, God’s love is so immense that His intention is for this more-than-enough love to overflow from our lives into the lives of those around us.

Ask Jesus to fill you with His love that never runs dry. And maybe, just maybe, there’s someone in your world today who is lonely who will experience His love from the overflow that comes out of your life.
