Finally, we come to the depth of God’s love. God’s Love is also deeper than Hell.
One of the most gripping scenes in the Lord of the Rings is when Gandalf confronts the Balrog. The battle really only begins when they both fall and fall and fall into the depths of the earth. It seems to never end and there is a sense of hopelessness to the falling. This illustrates the depths of hell to me.
God’s love is deep, full of riches and complexities. Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! Romans 11:33. These are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God 1 Corinthians 2:10. Every now and then, I need a deep conversation, a connection that reaches from one soul to another. I love it that God is deep and full of complexity. His love satisfies my need for deep connection.
God loves you so much, I pray that you might know the depths of Gods love for you, the length of God’s love, the height of God’s love. If you could only fathom the depths, if you could only explore the heights, if you could only see the length. To the length to which God was willing to go to save you. The depths to which Jesus was willing to come in order to redeem you. The heights to which God intends to bring you. That He might seat you together with Christ in heavenly places and make you a joint heir with Christ of His eternal kingdom. Oh the heights of the glory that God has for you. If you could only know,” Paul said, “comprehend that which is beyond knowledge. Hey, you cannot know it, it is beyond knowledge.” – Chuck Smith Commentary
While still incomprehensible in its entirety, what new insights do you have about God’s love?
