God’s Limitless Love

We love, because He first loved us.
1 John 4:19 (NASV)

God’s love is the strongest force in the universe. It is bigger and more loving than any can conceive. He authored and created the concept, and our existence is based on it. It should follow that we are good at it. But our concept of love is vulnerable because of our humanness and fallen nature. It is limited by the world, and ourselves.

It is surprising how God’s love is limited by some of the religious “experts.”

Beware when you hear that God’s love is dependent on or limited by:

  • our obedience
  • our faithfulness
  • our performance
  • our expectation for more

God offers a more complete, more fulfilling and more abundant love than we can conceive. Some of us are too fearful of thinking God loves us, loves me, individually, more than anyone has ever shown us love in this world. He loves omnisciently, beyond our knowledge of our own failings now and in the future. He loves us omnipresently, through the concept of time and eternity, without separation. He loves through any bad or good, right or wrong action despite any consequence, omnipotently.

God’s love is bounded only by our: own projection/imagination of the process/content of love, based on our own experience of loving or not loving relationships which are “good and bad,” including:

  • disappointments
  • abuse
  • failures as well as
  • fulfillments
  • attractions
  • joys

God is the author and creator/embodiment of love, sovereign over all in love as the definition of love is God’s behavior, but “unfathomable” due to His

  • Omniscience
  • Omnipotence
  • Omnipresence

He loves at a higher level, incomprehensible. To those who dwell in Him, He wants us to see His higher, more complex and complete love that goes beyond our limit.
