God's Love - Kenny Anderson

The four dimensions of God's love:
  • Breadth: John 3:16 "For God so loved the world..." It's a love wide enough to cover the whole earth!
  • Length: 1 Cor. 13:8 "Love never ends..." It's a love long enough that it never ends!
  • Height: Heb 12:22-23 "But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God..." A love which is high enough to reach us from earth and bring us into the heavens.
  • Depth: Phil. 2:8 "And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. " A love which is deep enough to take Christ form His throne, to the very depths, to reach the lowest of the lowest sinners.
These four dimensions describe an infinite and incomprehensible love!

A.W. Tozer- "Because God is self-existent, His love had no beginning; because He is eternal, His love can have no end; because He is infinite, it has no limit; because He is holy, it is the quintessence of all spotless purity; because He is immense, His love is an incomprehensibly vast, bottomless, shoreless sea..."
