“How deep the Father’s love for usHow vast beyond all measureThat He would give His only SonTo make a wretch His treasure”
If God loved us for what we bring, what we do, or who we are, all humanity would be hopeless. Instead, we are loved profusely, regardless of anything we could ever be, say or do. This unconditional love is what God, the Father wants to teach us. No matter what, love. Love conquers all and is the source of life, strength, hope, peace, and patience. Love is freedom form the past. Love is forgiveness. Love is courageous. Love is what we all need and who we need to be.
When we are betrayed, abandoned, struck down, and nearly destroyed, we have to remember that love is stronger than evil. Love will bring you home.
Consider how God feels, when people reject His love, so vast beyond measure, in order to live recklessly in a way that God already knows will bring them nothing but emptiness and sorrow. How crushing and yet, He stands in our corner, hoping for the moment we turn towards Him so he can run and embrace us, kiss us, and welcome us home where we belong. Where love lives. Where love gives. Where all we could ever need makes us free.
