Question #4 – Do you believe that God Loves you with a Love that is beyond human understanding or your capacity to ever fully grasp just how wide, how deep and how immense His Love for you really is just as you are not as you should be And that this Love beyond human reason will Never go away?
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” – John 3:16-17
The problem with so many things of value in the human life is that we see them twice but the third time they are invisible. So it is with this passage, that we think either “yeah I already knew that” or “well He really Loves everyone else and I am just along for the ride.” These are satans two most common ways to mask the depth, meaning and importance of the passage above.
The strongest hold that satan has on people is the discounted Love of God! The greatest lie that comes out of the enemy’s camp is the lie that this kind of Love can’t be real!
I have heard it in churches all the time and if the church which is His center for Truth is spreading it – how much more is it being spread through other sources?
“God Loves good boys and girls”, “If you do what He tells you He will Love you” – the list is endless with the spirit boggling crap I have heard spewed out from pulpits around the world.
But my point here is not to focus on those of diminished spiritual capacity due to an overabundance of religious knowledge. My point here is to share a Love beyond human capability to comprehend or understand for that is the very fiber of God, it is Who He Is and What He Freely gives – NOT based on performance but based on GODNESS!
If the Love of God comes from our abilities then it wouldn’t be His Love now would it! If the Love of God came from our goodness the best thing we could do is to be as good as possible one day and then shoot ourselves that afternoon before we have a chance to do or think “anything bad!”
What I am talking about, writing about, sharing and preaching is The Love that transcends all you have done, do now or ever will do! The Love I am sharing with you is beyond any action, thought or moment that has happened, is happening or will happen in your life.
The single greatest reason why most never get Grace, especially believers who are constantly bombarded with negative grace is that they really don’t think and they are constantly reinforced in the thought that a Love like this is just too good to be true – and in human terms they are right!
You nor I nor all the collective brains past, present and future could ever hope to understand the immensity, depth and width and capability of His Great Love for us!
Once you get that – the rest is easy and the rest is complete and the rest in that fact is SOOOOOO very sweet!
Take a few moments and make this part of your regular day for a while,
Breathe in and say:
“God Loves Me”
Breathe out and say:
“Just as I am”
Practice this with the other meditations from this series or alone but try this for the next week and see if unexplainable smiles just begin to happen!
