God’s Love


But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.                                                                                                                                                                    (Ephesians 2:4-7 ESV)

Today, during devotions, I came across the third verse of an old hymn, “There’s A Wideness In God’s Mercy”

“But we make His love too narrow, By false limits of our own; And we magnify His strictness, With a zeal He will not own.”

Think about it.  How deep and wide is God’s love?
