For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
1 Timothy 2:5-6
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
Many people spend their entire life in search of true love. Well, the beauty of the love of Jesus is that it’s the purest love one will ever find, because it IS true love. It can never be matched by any other love that is received.
The breadth of Jesus’ love covers every sin imaginable. With His arms stretched wide, nailed from one side of the cross to the other, and His legs stretched long, with His feet nailed to the cross, the length of Jesus’ love stretches from one side of the world to the other. The love of Jesus stretched from the past to the present, all the way into the future, to you and me. The length of His love runs for all eternity.
When Jesus died on the cross for you and me, His love stretched as deep as possible all the way to conquer death. And when He rose on the third day, His love stretched higher than is humanly possible and transcended all spiritual boundaries all the way to the throne of God the Father in Heaven, where He sits as the mediator between God and man. Jesus paid the only price that could be paid to save you and me, His sinless life, the life of the only begotten Son of God. That’s pure love and it’s available to all who desires it. This love will never die, will never change, but it will change you and keep on changing you for better and better for ever and ever.
Dear Father God,
Thank You Lord for true love, for the purest love possible, which is You and Your love. Lord it is this love, Your love that gets me through my toughest days and roughest nights. It’s this love that makes me know my self-worth. It’s this love that allows me to truly love others and to forgive, even my enemies Lord. It is this love that gives me peace of mind and security. And Lord it is this love that gives me hope for the future, that I will spend eternity being loved by You and loving and worshipping You. I pray that someone today who doesn’t know You and Your pure love would make the best decision of their life and give their life to You. And Lord I pray that all who have given their life to You would experience Your love on a whole new level and that Your love would take them higher and higher. I love You Lord.
In Jesus name I pray,
