Did You Know?

But me he caught—reached all the way from sky to sea; He pulled me out of that ocean of hate, that enemy chaos, the void in which I was drowning. They hit me when I was down, but God stuck by me. He stood me up on a wide-open field; I stood there saved—surprised to be loved! 2 Samuel 22:17-20 (The Message)

The depth of His mercy? Amazing. The fact that He is our Rescuer, our Redeemer? Wow. He never ceases to astonish with His unfailing grace.

But to be loved with the fervor of the Savior's love?

It's a surprise to be loved that much. Our minds can't grasp the depth of it; we're so accustomed to conditional love, we can barely understand how much He loves us.

But He loves us. No matter what. Did you know His love is surprising?
