"You are stronger, You are stronger
Sin is broken, You have saved me"
You know what terrifies me? The man that falls hard and falls fast, who loves deeply and over whom a girl has tremendous power to bring incandescent happiness or, through her vacillating mind and emotions, to bring confusion and deep pain.
Forgive the comparison, but it seems God has the same depth of love for us. He staked the life of His own Son on that love. As with anything God does, He loves us completely and fully, not holding back.
"The love of God
has been poured out in our hearts
by the Holy Spirit"
God does not require His love to be reciprocated though. Like when He put Abraham to sleep and passed through the covenant by Himself, holding up both ends of the agreement, so He loves because He loves. He demonstrated His love while we were still enemies of His. He wasn't a gallant knight, laying His life on the line for the fair maiden who would lavish kisses on him when he returned.
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us
In that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us"
I don't respond to God's love because I pity him and don't want him to feel bad. I respond because who He is commands loyalty, obedience, and worship. I respond to Him not because I have tremendous power to bring Him joy or pain, but because He is strong enough to put up with my unfaithfulness, disobedience, and self-serving and still call me back again and again.
"Our God is greater
Our God is stronger
God, You are higher than any other
Our God is healer
Awesome in power
Humans can't do that. God can. And thus my God is stronger and greater than any other. He is my Rock, and there is no one like Him.
