A fount of limitless love

There are no yardsticks in Heaven. Though we cannot fathom the Lord’s mind as He is too far above us to even contemplate, His word tells us the truth: His love knows no bounds.

Unlike worldly love that ebbs and wanes at its own discretion, God’s love is an unlimited source that wells up from His true nature. God is love.

In times of fear or uncertainty, it should be comforting to know that God is right by our side. If we are abiding in Christ, there is nothing to fear because we are held in the palm of God’s hand. We are as close as marrow is to bone.

It’s a marvelous mystery how much God loves us. The unfathomable depth of His love began in the Garden with the first murder of an animal and the skin was used to clothe Adam and Eve. Why did God do that? Even outside the Garden, while his fellowship had been broken, His love remained. It continued so much that He eventually sent his son to redeem mankind from his own sin.

Now, Christ sits at the right hand of God after making the ultimate sacrifice. Those who’ve put their trust in Him should no longer have any fears, worries, or doubts about the Lord’s love for us or His plans and provisions for our lives. Whether there’s famine, peril, nakedness, or sword, there’s nothing—at all—imaginable that can come between the Lord and His redeemed.

“…nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” –  Romans 8:39
