God's Unmeasurable Love
But as many as received Him, to them, He gave the right to become children of God,
to those who believe in His name:
Who can describe or measure the love of God? God is love. But the fact that God is love does not mean that everything is sweet, beautiful, and happy, and that God’s love could not possibly allow punishment for sin. God’s holiness demands that all sin be punished, but God’s love provided a plan of redemption and salvation for sinful man. God’s love provided the cross of Jesus Christ by which man can have forgiveness and cleansing. It was the love of God that sent Jesus Christ to the cross.
No matter what sin you have committed, no matter how black, dirty, shameful, or terrible it may be, God loves you. Yet this love of God that is immeasurable, unmistakable, and unending, this love of God that reaches to wherever a man or woman is, can be entirely rejected. God will not force Himself upon anyone against their will. It is your part to believe. It is your part to receive. Nobody else can do it for you.
Everlasting God, Thank You for Your unmeasurable love. Your love overwhelms me, Father. Thank You, that in spite of my sin, the work of Your Son on the cross can cleanse me from all the past. Humbly, I accept this gift, Lord. In Christ's name. Amen
