The word “love” has become numb to the world. It is just another word with no meaning and has no emotion attached to it. The dictionary definition of love is “a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person” (dictionary.com). In a Christian sense of the word “love,” it has a stronger and more powerful meaning in which it is a “selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love” (about.com). This kind of love is called agape love. “Agape perfectly describes the kind of love Jesus Christ has for His Father and for His followers” (about.com).
God’s love cannot be explained to the fullness of who He is. “God is love” (1 John 4:8). His love is beyond our comprehension that can only be experienced by encountering His presence. The love of Christ is the most sacrificial love we will ever experience in our lifetime. His love has no bounds. Psalms 36:5 says God’s love “reaches to the heavens and [His] faithfulness [reaches] to the skies.”
Nothing can separate us from God’s love. According to Paul, in Romans 8:37-39, he says “we are more than conquerors through Him [Christ] who loved us. For [he is] convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
God’s love is the most amazing gift that we could ever receive. God allowed His son, Jesus, to die on a cross so we could have a relationship with Him. Romans 5:8 says, “God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus died for us while we were still sinners. That’s breathtaking. That is how much God loves us.
