What Manner of Love



What manner of love is this?

God, you created me out of love 

You love me with no comparison 

You left all of your divinity for my sake

You became flesh and dwelt amongst us

You were rejected, persecuted, abandoned and cursed for my sake

You overcame the world for me

What manner of love is this?

You drew my heart towards you

You saved, adopted, changed and set me apart

You sealed me with your Holy Spirit

What manner of love is this?

Trying to understand it but my head and heart can’t fathom it

I am yours and you are mine, eternally

Nothing shall snatch me from your hands

Nothing shall separate me from your love

Nothing! Not even the devil.

Forever sealed and destined for heaven

What manner of love is this?

Who am I that you love me so much?

Who am I that you chose and ordained me for your purpose?

Who am I that your love for me changeth not?

Who am I?

Within my spirit, you answered me

You are my beloved daughter

I simply love you because you are my daughter

Oh, Abba, who am I?

Your love brings me down to my knees

Your love humbles and strengthens me

What manner of love is this?

Oh, Jesus, you are so good

You came to show me the heart of the Father

You brought grace and truth with you

You didn’t leave me an orphan

You gave me the gift and promise of the Holy Spirit

You are such a good good friend

I have the most relatable high priest ever

You understand me 100 percent

You comfort me so I can comfort others

You love me so I can love others

You truly have it all planned out, so we can all experience your love

What manner of love is this?

Holy Spirit, you are my teacher, best friend, comforter, helper and sweetheart

Oh what joy I found the day I found you

That glorious day!

The veil fell and I realized that you are so close to me

You literally live right inside of me

The day I realized that you want to talk to me and guide me in this world

Oh you love me so much

With love you rebuke, convict, discipline, correct and instruct me

You are with me all day and night

I am never alone

Forever sealed by you

What manner of love is this?

The more I think the more of your love I see, feel and know

I can’t fathom it all, yet I am overwhelmed by your gracious love

If I had a thousand tongues, it wouldn’t be enough to say thank you

Thank you for loving me

Thank you for loving me

Thank you for loving me

What manner of love is this?

One that keeps on loving

One that surpasses all understanding and knowledge

One that has no duplicate

I love you, God.

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not _ 1 John 3.

Eternally Loved
