1 John 4:9 “In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.”
No doubt we live in earthquake territory. Some people react differently to such a seismic event. I have lived in California all my life, so I barely react unless it’s an earthquake of higher magnitude. I usually turn to the news to try to find out what the magnitude force of the earthquake was and where it was centered. After an earthquake, we may hear that it was a “magnitude 4.0” which is the measure of energy concluded by a Richter Scale. Magnitude is defined in mathematics as the relative size of an object. In Astronomy, magnitude is a measure of brightness and brightness differences. This got me to think upon the love of God. There is no measure for God’s love.
The Bible says “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”(Romans 8:38, 39). We can conclude that no measure of life, no measure of power, no measure of time, and no measure of space can outdo any measure of God’s love for you.
If you are feeling weighed down today, Jesus said in love to give Him your burdens and He will give you rest (Matthew 11:28). In faith, He has forgiveness and healing in His hands because His love for you is immeasurable and unfailing (Numbers 14:18). We cannot help but to be moved by God’s love (2Corinthians 5:14). Did you feel that?
