God's Love is Boundless

In Christ the love of God is so vast. Ephesians speaks of the unfathomable or unsearchable riches of Christ and we are to apprehend the breath and length and height and depth of the love of Christ. Sin gives the impression that there is a boundary to God’s love. That is because we choose to live along the boundary of sin and God’s love. In comparison to God’s love, sin is a small plot that is encircled by His perfect Love. We have the vast ocean before us, yet we choose to get tangled up in sin. How foolish we are! In sin there is condemnation from the enemy. We are crushed because we act as slaves under the bondage of sin. Christ has broken the yoke. He has set us free. He has given us the ability to drink in the ocean of God’s love. There is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. Perfect love casts out fear. Oh swim out, and get lost in His beautiful love.
