Ever wonder what God might have to say to YOU today? Here are things to ponder, and things to receive into your heart. If you have a question, put it in the comments. I respond as much as I can.

A note for all my readers: I've been experimenting with YouTube videos for Bible teaching, and now I'm working my way through the New Testament. I encourage you to subscribe to my YouTube channel for better coverage. I'm still writing, of course, and my written posts appear here.

Infinite Love...

He set my feet upon a rock. 
That Rock was Christ. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, by which we must be saved.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? No! In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other thing in all creation shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

God's love is truly infinite.  It cannot be measured, numbered, or compared with anything else
The old song has it this way:
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.

When years of time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
The saints’ and angels’ song.

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,
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.

O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.

The love of God is revealed in all its power and splendor in the Person of God's Son, Jesus Christ.  When Christians say, "God loves you," or "Jesus loves you," they are not using some trite, meaningless expression.  They mean love that gives up life. They mean love that risks all. They mean love that is unquenchable, which even the fires of Hell itself cannot extinguish.  This love is the mightiest force in the universe, the greatest expression of Almighty God's infinite power and wisdom, the most permanent emotion of all.
And it's directed at YOU. You are the focus of God's love.  Receive His love. Revel in it. Enjoy it. And never fear, no matter how much of His love you  experience, there's more where that came from.
