Psalm 103:11 (Listen)
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
1 John 3:1 (Listen)
3:1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
Hymn: WS 760, st. 1,4,5: Oh, Love, How Deep
1. Oh, love, how deep, how broad, how high,
Beyond all thought and fantasy,
That God, the son of God, should take
Our mortal form for mortal’s sake!
4. For us by wickedness betrayed,
For us, in crown of thorns arrayed,
He bore the shameful cross and death;
For us he gave his dying breath.
5. For us he rose from death again;
For us he went on high to reign;
For us he sent his Spirit here
To guide, to strengthen, and to cheer.
