People Meeting God
For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son, so that whoever believes in Him should not die, but have eternal life.
How wide is God’s love? Wide enough to embrace everybody.
How long is God’s love? It is eternal -
it never runs out and never lets us go.
How high is God’s love? It lifts us to heaven.
How deep is God’s love? To the depths of our being and the depths of our sins.
Tell my people I love them.
Tell my people I care.
When they feel far away from me
Tell my people I’m there.
Meet God in the Bible
God loves us SO MUCH!
Many years ago I was weary and discouraged, weighed down with all kinds of responsibilities. And then reading the Bible I came to a passage which spoke directly to me. Written to God’s people millennia ago it was as if God was speaking these words just to me. They have been special to me ever since. It could be these are His words for you today too.
But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you,
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour;
I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.
Since you are precious and honoured in my sight, and because I love you,
I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your life.
Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
(Isaiah chapter 43 verses 1-5)
