LOVE

How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

It's true. As wretched as we once were (or maybe still are), the Father's love was so great that he delivered up His only Son for us; the sacrifice offered for that same wretchedness.

Not only does he give us physical life; holding our mortal lives together with His very Presence, but then adds to such grace, the payment for sins, granting us eternal life with Him.

To add even more to that, He has sent His Spirit to dwell with us and in us as believers.  This then is the fullness of His Grace, Mercy and Love ~ the fullness that we can bear witness to, up to this point, until heaven, our eternal destination becomes our present home.

May your desire for more of His Presence grow richly in you as you seek His Face. And may His great love for you, his child be made manifest in the Presence with which He surrounds and indwells you.

His Love for you is great.
