The Divine Mystery of Overflowing Love.
“Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions.“
Gods love is released into His dimension.
God chose to love us unconditionally.
God loves you.
The knowledge of this is transformational and has no bounds.
We are all on a level playing field for God’s extravagant love.
As humans we have two major issues with comprehending this because we base our concept of love on an emotion.
We certainly have issues with loving all people equally as we find some people easier to love than others in the natural.
We base our emotion on other influences and perceptions.
We like some People more readily when it is based on responses.
Equally we have dislikes as a result of our prejudices against people who hurt us or reject us etc because we don’t separate our emotions from our desire to love.
It is amazing to us that God is equally love sick and has the same desire to love and be part of the saint as the maximum sinner who has acted grotesquely committing abominations such as murder or rape.
When we witness the testimonies of some of these people who have been transformed in their coming to that love in a relationship with Jesus it blows our mind in awe and wonder and we see but in part the power of this Divine love above all other loves.
Equally it humbles us to the knowledge that our own capacity to love is often with boundaries and not as unconditional as we would hope.
To love others we also have to remove our own sense of being unlovable.
We suppress much deeply into our hearts from our own pains, hurts, shames and brokenness.
We need healing and made to feel worthy and able to love ourselves before we can totally love others.
He alone can outpouring that type of love that conquers all.
Only then can we come alive as we surrender to having Christ in us and so become the love bearers to others.
“And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy, because we can now experience the endless love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who lives in us!”
God chooses to love us.
We choose to accept His love and reciprocate.
Our capacity to love Him determines our desire to linger with Him.
As we extend that capacity to love God we become more of our true selves.
Where our hearts may have metaphorically been dead and flat lining they leap into life and love.
The illustration shows the flatlining heart graph leaping to life with Love. Love the light which dispels the darkness.
Four Scriptures that come to mind:
“Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God! Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.”Ephesians 3:17-19 TPT
“So, what does all this mean? If God has determined to stand with us, tell me, who then could ever stand against us? For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give. Who then would dare to accuse those whom God has chosen in love to be his? God himself is the judge who has issued his final verdict over them—“Not guilty!” Who then is left to condemn us? Certainly not Jesus, the Anointed One! For he gave his life for us, and even more than that, he has conquered death and is now risen, exalted, and enthroned by God at his right hand. So how could he possibly condemn us since he is continually praying for our triumph? Who could ever separate us from the endless love of God’s Anointed One? Absolutely no one! For nothing in the universe has the power to diminish his love toward us. Troubles, pressures, and problems are unable to come between us and heaven’s love. What about persecutions, deprivations, dangers, and death threats? No, for they are all impotent to hinder omnipotent love,”Romans 8:31-35 TPT
“Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything! So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God’s love. I’m convinced that his love will triumph over death, life’s troubles, fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love. There is no power above us or beneath us—no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God’s passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!”Romans 8:37-39 TPT
“And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy, because we can now experience the endless love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who lives in us!”Romans 5:5 TPT
