When we think of Christmas, we usually think of a baby born in a manger.
But that wasn’t the goal. It started in a manger but ended on a cross.
And THAT reminds me of how much LOVE was shown as a result.
It reminds me of the story of Fridtjof Nansen, a Norwegian explorer and statesman. He lived Norway between 1861-1930.
He tried to measure an extremely deep part of the Arctic Ocean. The first day he used his longest measuring line but couldn’t reach the bottom.
He wrote in his log book. “The ocean is deeper than that!”
The next day he added more line but again had to record, “Deeper than that!”
After several days of adding more and more line; He gave up without learning its actual depth.
All he knew was that it was beyond his ability to measure it. How ever hard he tried, his conclusion was “Deeper than that!”
You may have an idea of how great His love is… but it’s deeper than that.
You may have experienced a moment of His love… but it’s deeper than that.
You may have heard of how awesome His love is … IT’S DEEPER THAN THAT.
I pray that you will all the more experience the love of Christ this Christmas season.
Eph. 3:18, NLT. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.
