The Love Of God, This Sunday

Preparing and over-preparing…and feeling ill-prepared…

Church PewsThe process whereby I get ready for His Sunday morning message. I work hard at making it not be about what I know, and my personality, but more about what He is…and what He wants us to hear and know this day.

It’s a special day that takes a little planning, and a lot of prayer to feel like it will work the way you envision. While researching, and writing, this old song came into my mind… Perhaps you know it.

The Love of God, by O.S. Davis, Copyright 1949

The Love of Jesus to me is greater
Than anything else I’ve ever known.
It reaches deeper than any sin stain
It reaches higher than heaven’s throne

It brought the Savior from heaven’s glory
To give his life for a world of sin
Tho God of heaven, He condescended
To prove to you that he is your friend.

It giveth comfort to those in sorrow.
It bringeth peace to a troubled soul
The love of Jesus goes in the byways
To seek the sin sick and make them whole

Chorus:
The love of God is more to me
Than all this world could ever be
It reaches down from the throne of glory
And sets the vilest sinner free.
