I think it will take all our lifetime, and then eternity, to try to understand how much God loves us, and we still won’t fully get it. We just have no earthly example of that kind of love. No matter how much we mess up, God will continue to love us wildly.
I really like the way The Message Bible puts Romans 8:38-39: I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
As much as the enemy wants us to believe that we are unloved, it’s just not true. The love of God is so massive, so extreme, it sticks to us like divine glue. We’ll never get it off. But why would we want to? His love has the aroma of heaven that wraps around us like a soft cloud. We live in one big, continual hug.
God is constantly doting on us. I can almost see Him nudging an angel and pointing and saying, “Look, look at my girl! Look how amazing she is!” That’s my Dad! He makes me love Him more every day.
