Psalm 36:5, 7
“Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.”Psalms 36:5, 7 NLT
We spoke yesterday how sin ( what divides us from God and the marvellous life he offers) narrows our lives. sin is controlling, manipulating, it enslaves us and makes us live puny lives.
Today, we see the contrast of life in sin to a life in the love of God.
For the love of God is specious, meteoric, brings liberty, it’s unconditional, unfailing. His love and faithfulness are put side by side, his righteousness and justice alongside too. We people can proclaim to ’love’ but we fail to be faithful and decent or truthful. But God is very different from us. He is characterized by his love which is endless and welcoming, perfect and deep.
How deep is your love?
How long do we bear with someone until our interest has gone? How long do we stay in a relationship when life gets taught? How deep are we willing to love each other in order to see change and transformation?
I can tell you that our love runs out, it’s scarce even when we think we are offering all we have, but Gods love is endless and he is the fountain of love.
When we run to him we experience the vastness of his love, we are absolutely assured by his faithfulness and rested in his kindness.
Jesus said the ultimate price for us to experience and live out that love, let’s start now.
