The Love of God
The love of God is one of the grandest themes in all the Bible. To understand what love is, is to understand God, for God is love.
Could we with ink the ocean fill.
And were the skies of parchment made;
Were every stalk on earth a quill.
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Tho stretched from sky to sky.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forever more endure
The saints and angels song.
It is impossible to fully fathom and sound the heighth and depth, width and breadth of the love of God while in these mortal frames. Yet we get an inkling of what type of love Gods love is when we read 1 Corinthians 13:1-8. If we replace each I and each place where the word love is with the word, God in these verses, we will come just a little closer to seeing what kind of love Gods love is. If God perceived all secrets and all knowledge (and we know He does), and if God should have all faith, so as to transport mountains (and we know He surely does), yet should He have no love, He is nothing.
