To the Utmost Bounds
The Breadth of God’s Love
Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
“This word BREADTH is to show, that God is all over, everywhere, spreading of His wings, stretching out His Goodness to the utmost bounds, for the good of those that are His people.” John Bunyan
Though our sins be many, it is edifying to know about this breadth- God’s breadth. God’s breadth is a breadth of goodness and love. “Love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8). Man also has his own breadth. It is a breadth of sin. Man’s breadth of sin is far and wide. It seems unending. God’s breadth of love is immeasurable and farther still. Come now brothers and sisters- let us repent of our sins and take comfort in God’s soul- cleansing, covering breadth of love.
