JOHN SHIRK – From Ephesians 3:17 and 18-And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.
His love is wide. Psalm 103:12 says, “As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”
His love is long. Isaiah 59:1 says, “Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save.” Jesus came the distance from heaven to earth to rescue us from the eternal consequences of our sin.
His love is high. Psalm 103:11 says, “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him.”
His love is deep. Micah 7:19 says, “You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”
Each dimension of God’s love is a lesson of faith worth remembering.
