“How Deep is God’s Love?”

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”– Ephesians 3:17b-18

On my many trips to western North Carolina, I saw some wonderful sights. There was one spot though I saw it many times, I never got to explore or get the story on it. I’m sure there is a local who can tell about it. “What is this mysterious treasure?” you ask. Well, it’s “The Bottomless Pools” in Lake Lure.

I’ve even tried “Googling” it to no avail – at least not to my satisfaction. There are three waterfalls. They are currently closed. They are part of the Chimney Rock State Park master plan. At least one person has drowned there. But, MY questions remain unanswered.

How deep are they? How do they know they are bottomless? Have they tried sonar? Can I help them look for the bottom?

I imagine dropping weighted lines and feeding spool after spool of line into the depths. Maybe don some scuba grab and head down. Deploy a robotic submersible maybe. How serious are we about getting to the bottom of this mystery (literally).

But, there is another mystery which is much easier to resolve. Our friend Paul tells us he wants us to know the answer. That question?

How deep is God’s love?

The answer – just as deep as it needs to be to pull you from your sin. It is as deep as your darkest sorrow. It dives to the depths to rescue us and to set us firmly on the foundation of grace at the Father’s side.

All you must do is call out to Him and He will reach down and grasp firmly onto you.

Do you feel like you’ve gone too far? No way.
Do you think you sin is too bad? Can’t happen.
Do you think He can’t reach you? He can. He will.
