Last week, we redefined love and touched on the highest expression of love (God’s kind of love – agape). Today, we will be expounding on it.
Love is expressed in giving. In the history of human relationships, love expression through death or the sacrifice of one’s self, remains ultimate. This was what Jesus meant when He said:
John 15:13 – “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends”.
God’s love for mankind took him to the cross. It wasn’t just that He went to the cross for us but that He did so even when we were undeserving of it. God giving himself up on the cross for us was the highest demonstration of love. He owed us nothing.
Romans 5:7 – “For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”.
One would have taught it all ended at the cross but look at this:
Romans 8:32 – “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
This rhetoric question by Apostle Paul reveals that there is no limit in love. If He could demonstrate what we (humans) consider as the highest form of love expression, then there is absolutely nothing that His love cannot supply us. Just when you think you have known or experienced His love, He reveals yet another dimension. His love surpasses knowledge. Hallelujah!
Ephesians 3:19 – “And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God”.
I pray for you today, that you might be rooted and grounded in love, that you may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God. Amen!
