Demonstration of God’s Love

We Will Never Plumb the Depths of God’s Love in All Eternity

Ephesians 2:7 (NKJV)
[7] that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Jamieson Faucett & Brown in their commentary* observe:
Ephesians 2:7 answers the question of why God lavished such love upon his people: so that they will marvel for all of eternity over the incredible kindness and love of God. It will take all of eternity to fathom God’s love, and those who are saved will never plumb the depths of it.

The thought that “It will take all of eternity to fathom God’s love, and those who are saved will never plumb the depths of it” is so powerfully touching my heart.

In this world, all we know is limited supply. Eventually, we will run to the end of everything: money, time, resources, energy, pleasure, satisfaction, peace, safety, health, life — even human love.

Yet for all eternity we will never exhaust the Love of God! There will be new (to us) depths and places in His love that we will endlessly discover for all eternity! Think of that! Oh, the constant satisfaction! Oh, the constant delight and pleasure! Oh, the wonder of real, unfailing Love!

The one thing the world over seeks is this Love…. eternal Love…. forever Love.vYet we foolishly seek love elsewhere…

“For My people have committed two evils:They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.” (Jeremiah 2:13)

A catch basin, that’s all it is — and a broken one at that!
Yet He is the Living Water (John 4). His Love is an everlasting Love fit for all eternity. From this moment to eternity, His Love will always satisfy us with delight, wonder and discovery!

His great, conquering Love brought us from the depths of of sinfulness — objects of His wrath — to being “seated together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6)!

Such Costly Love – Part 3

[Series: Such Costly Love] The great Love of God is supremely demonstrated by the costly sacrifice of Jesus and shed His precious blood for us. In this episode we learn more about SUCH COSTLY LOVE and more reasons for His shed blood:

  • Remission of sins, which brings about the completely removal of all sin, past present and future.
  • Blood of purification
  • Brought near to God
  • New Covenant Blood

Such Costly Love – Part 2

[Series: Such Costly Love] Christians understand that it was necessary for Christ to shed His precious blood to bring us salvation. Unfortunately, very few Christians understand why Jesus had to shed His blood for US. In this episode we learn about:

  • Redemption blood – as a ransom, purchasing us from sin, self and Satan to God. We now belong to God and His Loving care!
  • Reconciliation Blood – bringing restoration of friendly relations and peace with God,
  • Justification Blood – being declared innocent and given the same standing with God that Jesus has.
  • Perfect Sanctification Blood – set apart completely and perfectly for God, now and forever.

Such Costly Love – Part 1

[Series: Such Costly Love] The Greatness of God’s incredible love is demonstrated and clearly seen not in the best of places… but in our worst. In this first part of a two-part message we’ll look into the great cost of God’s Love for YOU.

  • Exactly what is this great demonstration of God’s Love?
  • This love is shown to the ungodly.
  • The fallacy of “poor helpless souls”, as opposed to the biblical truth that all sinners are in a deplorable state rebellion, idolatry and selfishness against God.
