Unfathomable! Unsearchable! Unmeasurable!

(Octavius Winslow, "Morning Thoughts")

"This is real love! It is not that we loved God,
 but that He loved us and sent His Son as a 
 sacrifice to take away our sins." 1 John 4:10

"This is real love!" That God should punish the
innocent for the guilty; that He should exact the
blood of His Son to cancel the guilt of His rebels;
that He should lay an infinite weight of wrath on
Jesus' soul, in order to lay an infinite weight of love
on ours; that He should sacrifice His life of priceless
value, for our worthless, forfeited, and doomed life;
that He should not only give His Son, but should
bruise Him, put Him to grief, afflict Him, and
make His soul an offering for sin; that the 'Lord
of Glory' should become a 'man of sorrows'; that
the Lord of Life should die.

Oh depth of love unfathomable!

Oh height of love unsearchable!

Oh length and breadth of love unmeasurable!

Oh love of God, which passes knowledge!
