I can never understand it. At most, the best that I can understand is what I experience from other people. Although what they are giving is still flawed and imperfect. We live in an imperfect world. Everyone has the capability to love but to be able to consistently and perfectly give unconditional love, for me, seems impossible. At one point, a person can still go with his or her own selfish desire. The question is, right now, how much do we really understand God’s amazing and perfect love?
I know we’ve experience it. We have come to know God’s love through what he has done for us in the cross, or we might have experience it first hand in the blessings he has given us. I believe it’s much more than what we think we know.
18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
How wide? How Long? How High? How Deep? It’s a rhetoric question that means there is no limit to it. I have fallen a lot of times, and I still see His love following me and chasing after me.
I’ve made a mistake and in a split second, I hear a voice speaking in my heart that He will forgive me. I wanted to run, but He was already ahead of me – not wanting me to wander from away from the truth. I can’t understand it. I can’t understand why He loves me that much. All I can do is give in and rest again in His embrace.
I want to give encouragement to you, I know life can be a series of ups and downs – sometimes, it’s mostly down. No matter what you are going through, God loves you. You might have turned your back from him. You might have failed Him. You might have sinned against Him. All I know is, He still loves you. Just come back. Come back to Him and talk to Him. He longs to be with you.
