God's Love is So Big
It was Sunday evening at my son Joe's house. We were saying our last goodbyes to the kids before bed time. Joe and I planned to leave early the next morning.
My Grandson Caleb came up to me and said, "I love you so much! I love you through the world and back. I love you all the way to the moon and back. I just love you!"
Then he went over to Grandpa Joe and said, "I love you just as much as I love Grandma."
Well what can a grandma say to that? This little boy described the biggest things he knew so he could describe his love for me. Tears filled my eyes. Before letting him run to his bed I grabbed him and filled his cheeks with kisses.
I'm reminded of the Fathers big love for us. He loved us so much that he described his love with His Son. Jesus was the biggest part of God that He could use to describe His love for us.
In this 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 (NKJV)
