Love That Reaches Down is Grace.

Hey everyone! How are you? I hope all is well!

[FYI: Agape is greek for love :).  In Christian theology agape is related to the love of God or Christ for mankind. This word represents divine, unconditional, self-sacrificing, active, volitional, and thoughtful love.]

When you feel unloved, ponder the Cross.

If you are looking for a definition, don’t

look in the dictionary; look to Calvary.

-Gary Vanderet

.

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

1 John 4:10 (ESV)

.

Love that reaches up is adoration.

Love that reaches across is affection.

Love that reaches down is grace.

-Donald Grey Barnhouse

How Deep The Father’s Love For Us- Owl City (with lyrics)

Song written by Stuart Townend

Lyrics:
How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasureHow great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to gloryBehold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocing voice,
Call out among the scoffersIt was my sin that helf Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I knoww that it is finishedI will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast inJesus Christ
His death and resurrectionWhy should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
(REPEAT)

-Always, for God’s glory and our joy in Him!

  1. Thank you Kevin for this post…. BEAUTIFUL. There is a good work here. And may the Lord bless you, indeed!

    The Lord reminds me often… ‘It is not about you. It is all about ME. I AM Grace!’ And I am so blessed that it is Him, that is, and sounds the charge… to LOVE!

    I repeat myself when I say “For all the things I’m not… there’s Jesus! For all the things I am… there’s Jesus! For all… stands JESUS! “Behold, I [JESUS] stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.” [Revelation 3:20] And it is at this table with Jesus… Grace abounds! THANK THE LIVING GOD!

    Lol… Love out loud in Christ!
