HOW DEEP IS GOD'S LOVE? (2)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. How deep is God's love?  

a) Jesus Christ demonstrated true love when as God He humbled himself and became a man on earth to restore our relationship with the God who created us. Jesus said in  

(John 15:12-13 NKJV) 
“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. {13} “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

b) A person that knows God loves to spend time with Him in prayer, basking in his presence. A person that knows God loves to spend time in His awesome Word and receive new revelations about Him. A person that knows God will see everything about God through the knowledge of His loving compassion.  

(Lamentations 3:21-26 NKJV) 
This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope. {22} Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. {23} They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. {24} “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” {25} The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him. {26} It is good that one should hope and wait quietly For the salvation of the LORD.

(Hosea 6:6 NKJV) 
For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, And the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.  

c) God desires that we come to know Him, and accept His love; and that we become a channel for His compassion to flow through. He has promised that if we seek Him we will find Him. 

(Acts 17:26-28 NKJV) 
“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, {27} “so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; {28} “for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’


The End ...
