The highest altitude to which most of us have risen is around 30,000 feet in an airplane. Yet there is even more expanse above to explore. In fact, the reach is endless. And no matter how far east we travel, we will never reach west and no matter how far west we travel, we will never reach east.
These examples of infinity open our eyes to the vastness of space and travel. Yet it is even more amazing to explore the riches of God’s amazing love for us, which is without limit or boundaries. God’s unconditional love is revealed in Christ’s death and resurrection for mistakes that embarrass us, causing hurt and offense to others, as well as challenges that overwhelm us. Christ’s endless, forgiving love exceeds them all and restores and renews us in Him. Through the Word, the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to the breadth and length and height and depth of His love and enables us to comprehend all He has to offer us (Ephesians 3:17-19). With sins forgiven and a life redeemed, we grow to understand more of the expanse of His unending, limitless love.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank You for Your love that far exceeds our imaginations. May Your salvation always be a reminder of the love revealed through You. Amen.
