For his unfailing love toward those who fear him
is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
He has removed our sins as far from us
as the east is from the west.
The Lord is like a father to his children,
tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
I love this!
How can we measure God’s love for us?
It is as high as the height of the heavens above the earth. Think of that. The heavens include the sky, the clouds, the sun and stars. As far as we can see, NO actually farther that we can see or conceive. That’s how great God’s love is for us!
And do we need evidence of this?
Look at how far He throws our sins away from us. As far as the east is from the west. There’s no measuring that. No end to it, no limitation or return.
If we trust God.
If we commit to follow Jesus, accept His dying for us on the cross to take away our guilt. Then our sins are gone, absolutely gone. As far as the east is from the west. Gone beyond our imaginations.
