How Deep the Father’s Love!

April 27, 2014

Romans 5:8 NIV … But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Ephesians 3:14-21 NIV …  For this reason I kneel before the Father,15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

 Psalm 36:5 NIV …   Your love, O LORD , reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.

Thank You Lord for Your great love, a love that is wider, longer, higher & deeper than any of us can imagine. A love that gave us Your Son Jesus Christ. Help each of us get a glimpse of this love that surpasses knowledge today & always. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:37-39 … No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Thy Will{Love Deeper than Pain} 
Karen Holland … 9-30-06 

A heart touched, overcome with pain 
Kneels in a garden 
Weeping in darkness 
Alone this heart prays 
In anguish the heart yields.  –Mt 26:42

Kneeling before the Lord, I know 
No matter how deep the pain 
How heavy the burden to bear 
He will not let me break 
He will not let me fall 
He is my shield 

He lifts my head –Ps 3:3
Lifted up by His hand 
Secure in this knowledge I stand 
No matter how deep the pain 
No matter how dark the night 

I am never alone 
His love is deeper than any pain 

For He yielded His heart 
Accepted the cup 
And drank.
