Incomprehensible Love (Ephesians 3:17–18)
What are some things that you know about but don’t really understand?
How much does Jesus love you?
A child asked Jesus how much he loved her. He answered, “This much,” and then he stretched out his arms and died on the cross.
You may have heard this before. It’s a good way to think about how much Jesus loves you. He loves you so much that he left heaven and came to earth for you. He loves you so much that he suffered and died for you. And the Bible says that nothing you can do will separate you from the love of Jesus. In these verses from Ephesians, Paul describes Jesus’ love as being “wide and long and high and deep.” The idea is that it is infinite—you will never come to the end of it. God loved you before he created you. He loves you right this minute. And he will love you for eternity. We cannot possibly understand how much Jesus loves us. We don’t have to. All we have to do is accept it.
Dear God, thank you for your love. Please help us to accept it. Amen.
Taken from Once a Day At the Table
This is the love that many refuse to accept because they have no faith to believe. For them it is meaningless, fantasy, fairy-tale nonsense but I say to them…..I once felt exactly the same. Anyone who has a ‘born again’ experience will tell you that it is a life-changing experience and for the better, by far the better. Having the realisation that one, there is a God and He is the Creator of all things, two there is a Saviour which is Jesus Christ and three there is life everlasting in His name may come as a surprise to some but when they experience Gods’ unconditional love and then His forgiveness through their faith in Jesus they become different people and are filled with joy and praise. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:1)
