Such Awesome Love Christ Had For Man

Today's post continues the theme of "He Put a New Song In My Mouth." Easter may have passed but the truth of what Christ has done for us is something to be celebrated every day.


How can I possibly express God's love with mere words?



It's so hard for our finite minds to comprehend the love that Christ has for us.


How can I possibly express God's love with mere words?


Thinking of ways to describe God's love for us, so many words come to mind; amazing, wonderful, unfathomable, marvellous, magnificent and glorious. A friend's favourite word is 'awesome.' The word awesome can be defined as extremely good or excellent, but the true meaning is “something which inspires awe." I don't think there is a better way to describe God's love for us.


These are just a few of the verses that speak of this awesome love.


John 3:16,17 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him Christ died for us. should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.


Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

To think that He would leave the glories of heaven to come down and take on human flesh, to live among us, and then, knowing how wretched we are, He still chose to die for us. Such awesome love!


Even as he was about to be led to his death, he showed his love for us and obedience to God the Father.


Matthew 26:53,54 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

Hebrews 5:8,9 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

Such Awesome Love

Such awesome love Christ had for man,
to set aside his glory,
when he left his throne for the world he had made;
took the form of a helpless baby.
Entrusting his care and his earthly needs
to the hands that he had created,
he lived and dwelt among sinful man,
yet his love for us never faded.

Such awesome love that Christ would leave
the glorious splendour of heaven,
to come to this earth as God and man,
to redeem his fallen creation.

Such awesome love Christ showed for man
to set aside his power.
He allowed himself to be nailed to the cross,
in obedience to his Father.
He suffered such degradation and pain
at the hands that he had created,
to bear our sin, and lay down his life,
yet his love and forgiveness await us.

Such awesome love that Christ would leave
the glorious splendour of heaven,
to come to this earth as God and man,
to redeem his fallen creation
.

Such awesome love!
