God’s Love

There are many ways of talking about the love of God in the Bible.

‘Does a mother forget her baby or a woman the child in her womb? Yet even if these forget I will never forget you, says the Lord’ Isaiah 49:15

‘As a bridegroom rejoices over the bride so will your God rejoice over you’ Isaiah 62:5

God will feed his flock like a shepherd and gather the lambs in his arms holding them close to his heart. Isaiah 40:10-11

As a father has compassion on his children… Psalm103:13

The love of God is like a deep pool, there are many ways of looking at it, and each way is beautiful and magical and tells us something precious. We mostly use images of human relationships and emotions to point us to God’s love, because these things are important to us and part of our experience. But the love of God is always more, it is infinite like God.
