Romantic love is wonderful – but it’s only a reflection of the much deeper love God has for His children!– from Pastor Begg’s broadcasted sermon today
I was encouraged and reminded by a sermon from Alistair Begg on God’s love, his “First, Love: The Original Plan” that broadcasted today.
Yes, I recommend giving this sermon a listen. Dated February 14, 2020.
It is mind blowing to me how crazy deep, rich, broad and intimate God’s love is!
“The Love of God” Hymn is a favorite of mine and gives a descriptive attempt at the vastness of God’s love:
The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell
It goes beyond the highest star
And reaches to the lowest hell
The guilty pair, bowed down with care
God gave His Son to win
His erring child He reconciled
And pardoned from his sin
Could we with ink the ocean fill
And were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade
– A few stanzas from The Love of God hymn
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky
And to think that in Christ his love is inseparable!
“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39 NASB
