John 15:13: Greater love hath no man that this. that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Meditation: How does one properly articulate the scope and depth of God’s love? I must admit that l fall woefully short in the task of doing so. Frederick M. Lehman however captured the essence very well in the Hymn that we’re all familiar with: “The Love of God.” The last stanza of that hymn is: Could we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made, Were every stalk on earth a quill, And every man a scribe by trade; To write the love of God above Would drain the ocean dry; Nor could the scroll contain the whole, Though stretched from sky to sky.
Prayer: It’s through shed tears that I thank you for the shed blood! Amazing Love! How can it be that thou my God should die for me! Amen.
