Infinite, Divine, and Sovereign Love

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

~ Romans 8:38-39, ESV ~


The Apostle Paul summarizes the simplistic message this way: but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8, ESV) In recovery, we have lost sight of genuine and intimate love. We spent our time and energy seeking the love and adoration of others. We crave intimate relationships with others. When we come to realize that Christ’s love for us is personal, rich and intimate; we no longer need to seek after the adoration of the world. And, the great hope we are blessed with is that there is nothing that will separate us from the love of God.

Johnathan Edwards wrote:

Christ is like a river in another respect. A river is continually flowing, there are fresh supplies of water coming from the fountain-head continually, so that a man may live by it, and be supplied with water all his life. So Christ is an ever-flowing fountain; he is continually supplying his people, and the fountain is not spent. They who live upon Christ, may have fresh supplies from him to all eternity; they may have an increase of blessedness that is new, and new still, and which never will come to an end.

It is through our relationship with Jesus Christ that we experience an infinite, divine, and sovereign love that surpasses all understanding. This love of God gives us peace, comforts us in time of distress, and strengthens us.

Your Daily Recovery Walk Through Proverbs

~ Proverbs 3:3-4 ~

Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
    bind them around your neck;
    write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favor and good success
    in the sight of God and man.
