The Love Of God

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:6–8, NIV 1984).

My Musings – One of those Quotables, that perhaps we don’t fully appreciate. Perhaps we never can “fully” appreciate. Good thing we have eternity to express it. But God did more than express it. He demonstrated it. When the time was right. While we were powerless to do anything about it ourselves. While we were still sinners. His Son left the splendor of Heaven to die for us. Rarely? Only once. Once was all that was needed.

“If that isn’t love, then the ocean is dry. There’s no stars in the sky, and the little sparrows can’t fly. Yeah, if that isn’t love, then heaven’s a myth, there’s no feeling like this.” (Dottie Rambo). If that isn’t love, then what is?

My Advice – The love that only comes around once is love worth receiving. Love worth inexpressible gratitude. The time is right.

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.

O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.

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.

O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.

— The Love of God, Frederick M. Lehman

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
