Love really is all you need (God’s that is!)

Another gem from Winslow!

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins. – 1 John 4:10

“Herein is love!” as though John would say, “And nowhere else but here!” That God should punish the innocent for the guilty- that He should exact the blood of His Son to cancel the guilt of His rebels- that He should lay an infinite weight of wrath on His soul, in order to lay an infinite weight of love on ours- that He should sacrifice His life of priceless value for ours- worthless, forfeited, and doomed- that He should not only give His Son, but should bruise Him, put Him to grief, afflict Him, should make His soul an offering for sin- that the ‘Lord of Glory’ should become a ‘man of sorrows’, the Lord of Life should die, and the Heir of all things should be “as him that serves.” Oh depth of love unfathomable! Oh height of love unsearchable! Oh length and breadth of love unmeasurable! Oh love of God, which passes knowledge!

    The Father said to Christ,”Go take yourself a wife of harlotry and children of harlotry,for the land has commited great harlotry by departing from the LORD.” Yet He comes in forgiveness time and again to bring us back to Himself. Great is His Faithfulness to the unfaithful,His love is so very real and true to this Gomer.
