Theology Tuesday: God’s Love
Charles Spurgeon in a lengthy but worthwhile quote said:
He has loved you without a cause. The grace of God is deeper than the
depths of our sin, higher than the heights of our rebellion, broader and
longer than the breadths and lengths of our depravity. Oh, the exceeding
riches of the grace of God!
He has loved you without beginning. Before years, and centuries, and
millenniums began to be counted, your name was on his heart. Eternal
thoughts of love have been in God’s bosom towards you.
He has loved you without a pause. There never was a minute in which he did
not love you. Your name once engraved upon his hands has never been erased, nor
has he ever blotted it out of the Book of Life.
He has loved you most patiently. You have often provoked him; you have
rebelled against him times without number, yet he has never stopped the outflow of his heart towards you; and, blessed be his name, he never will. You are his, and you always shall be his.
He has loved you without boundary. He could not love you more, for he loves
you like a God; and he never will love you less. All his heart belongs to you!
For you, Jesus left the throne of honor for the cross of shame; the brightness
of glory for the darkness of the tomb.
Oh, the depths of the love which is revealed in Calvary!
The incomprehensible love of God is deeper than hell, and higher than heaven. It is as
long as eternity, and wide as immensity.
You will never, never be able to fathom the depth of the love of God towards you, in the gift of his dear Son to be your Redeemer.
Oh, how ought I to love my God who has so loved me! Oh, how I ought to hate the
sin which made my Savior bleed!
