A Magnitude Of Love

1 John 4: 10

“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”

God is the author, parent and commander of love. His love is the very foundation of our salvation. He loved us when we didn’t reciprocate. He loved us in our guilt, misery, shame and hopelessness. When we were polluted, unclean, unlovely and unlovable, He sacrificed His only Son for our wretched sinful condition, so …that we could be healed, restored, reconciled and made lovely. What sacrifice! What service! What mercy! What grace He bestowed upon us so that we might live life abundantly and live eternally blessed in His presence! O what a magnitude of love is ours in the deep, deep love of Jesus.
