God's Love

Forsythia blossom

Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. — Romans 8:38 – 39

One time a father wanted to teach his son the lesson of God’s great goodness. He took him to the top of a high hill and pointed northward over Scotland, southward over England, eastward over the ocean, westward over the hill and valley, and then sweeping his arm around the whole circling horizon, he said "Johnny, my boy, God’s love is as big as all of that." 
"Why father," the boy replied with sparkling eyes, "then we must be right in the middle of it." 
– Earnest Worker

 We are right in the middle of God’s love – and NOTHING can separate us from this undeserved, unlimited love.

When it is said that God loves man this is not a judgment on what man is like, but on what God is like. — Anders Nygren, Agape and Eros, 1953
