“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. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:19-20 NLT

Christ’s love is unending. In the hustle and bustle of today’s society, we need to stop and meditate on this game changing truth often. His love towards us is everything! “While we were sinners… God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us” — that’s an all-encompassing, no-exceptions, one-size-fits-all kind of love.
No matter who we are, no matter what we have done or haven’t done, His love is a love that cannot be earned or lost. (Romans 5:8; Romans 8:35-39)

No matter what our story is so far, and no matter how others have exemplified love to us, God has provided us with the greatest example of love that we will ever need.

He sent His only Son to walk amongst us so that we’d have a companion on the journey who knows well the roads we walk in life (every turn, every valley, every mountain-view), but later He would die an undeserved death on the cross so we could keep walking this journey in constant & fulfilling relationship with the Father into eternity – Love in its purest form.

It can be a difficult love to comprehend, especially given the life experience some of us have, but when we look to His Word, the truth is revealed.

We read in Romans 5:8 that nothing can separate us from God’s love. Even if all our wrongs were pooled to fill the deepest oceans, or stretched out end-to-end to reach the farthest corners of the universe, there is no truth more compelling than this — We are loved.

God’s love ‘out-depths’ the oceans, is not bound within our confines of space and does not weaken with time — it is never ending, unrelenting in its pursuit of us as it was on the day it led Jesus to the cross. Such love compels us to invite others to plumb the depths of this great and unending love!
