From the very beginning, God loved us with a love beyond our comprehension. He created a perfect world, gave us freedom to make our own choices, and redeemed us when we failed. As you read this devotional, keep this in mind.
The love that surpasses knowledge!
(Horatius Bonar, “The Chief Among Ten Thousand”)
“To Him who loves us, and has freed us from our sins by His blood!” Revelation 1:5
The name of Him who loves us is not given, because it would be superfluous to state it. Only One could be meant. His is love like Himself . . .
Love stronger than death or the grave–love that loves us . . .
out of sin,
out of the grave,
out of Hell,
It is the love whose breadth and length, depth and height, are immeasurable–the love that surpasses knowledge!
“May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should–how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is!” Ephesians 3:18
“May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully!” Ephesians 3:19
