Song: “The Love of God”
Frederick M. Lehman
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.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song.
When hoary 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. Refrain:
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.
VERSE: Ephesians 3:19—“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.”
It seems that we, as humans, are always trying to figure things out. We want things to make sense so when things, even blessings, don’t add up in our minds, we are filled with doubt. But, to know the love of Christ is to experience the supernatural and to witness miracles and blessings in our lives, both big and small, that don’t always match our knowledge. When we place our truth in Christ and view this world through eyes of faith, we will know a true, beautiful, and unfailing love. We will experience the love of Jesus in a true and meaningful way. We will be filled with all that God has to offer us. Look to Jesus, not just for answers but also for peace. Trust all He is doing for you in your life. Seek Him and know Him. Remember, Jesus loves you. You are loved.
Prayer: Jesus, fill me with the fullness of who You are. Help me to embrace Your perfect love. Fill my heart with your joy and my mind with your presence. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
