How Great

1 John 3:1  See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.


Great is uses to describe the manner/quality of the love he is lavishing/bestowing upon us. To grant/supply such a magnitude of love! See it! See what great love! This love he gives us, no he lavishes us with it, that we are called children of God! He called and invited us to be his children! And we are.

The magnitude of such love that he gives, I am overjoyed. The sheer magnitude fills the heart and bounds happily over its borders, covering everything else. Fall into the great love the Father has lavished on you, it’s yours and mine.

Precious Father, I thank you for such a magnificent gift, the gift of your love. Thank you for bestowing it upon me and for letting me be your child. I pray that those who read this will feel the sheer magnitude of love that you lavish on your children. Let it fill up their hearts so full that it overflows and is visible outward in their actions and words. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
