God’s love for us is magnificent— as in brilliant, glorious, majestic, splendid, surpassingly good, superior. His love for us is so far above our understanding that we constantly undervalue it. If we truly understood how much He loves us, we’d be overwhelmed.
The Father’s love for us is massive. He gave His Son to die for our sins. And it was for love that Jesus sacrificed Himself. I try and try to comprehend that amount of love and I just can’t. What ever I can imagine is so far short of what it must be that I just have to accept that His love is beyond my capacity to fully grasp.
In today’s culture, where so many people feel disenfranchised and forgotten, it’s an amazing and wonderful thing to know that God loves us with such great love. We are truly, deeply loved. If you can accept that and feel that in your soul, it will change you. You will never feel alone or unappreciated again. And if you can love other people with the Father’s heart, you are smack in the middle of what the Kingdom of God is all about.
God’s plan to save us and care for us comes from His magnificent love. Just try and figure out how big that is. I dare you.
