God’s Love – The Farthest Horizon


Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:7

On the farthest horizon of our human understanding we can just make out the faint outline of God’s amazing love. Paul explains to us four windows through which God’s love looks out. It is the same love but as we pass from window to window the vastness of God’s horizon spreads out till we can no longer see its limits

Window #1 Love Bears all things. We are fond of saying “I can do all things” without knowing that the first of those things is to bear the cross and follow Him. Love carries its cross all the way to the end of the road

Window #2 Love Believes all things: But the bearing that Jesus did of His cross was not in doubt, nor complaining. He went to Calvary, just as he had said because He believed in the will and the work of His Father.

Window #3 Love Hopes all things: Sometimes that hope is against all hope a hope that cries out “My God, My God why have you forsaken me?” and still never dies.

Window #4 Love Endures all things: At the final hour Jesus carried God’s love to the end of His life and then he breathed his spirit. into the Father’s hands

Through love’s four windows we first look in to see Jesus’ love for us,but once we come in to receive it we can look out and see the world through the eyes of God!
