The hero refuses to allow anything to come between him and his beloved. He leaves everything and everyone behind, and embarks on a search and rescue mission.
And he does it without any guarantee his devotion will ever be returned.
The song says, "When I was Your foe, still Your love fought for me.
You have been so, so good to me.
When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me.
You have been so, so kind to me." "And oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God.
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine.
And I couldn't earn it, and I don't deserve it, still, You give Yourself away.
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God."
"There's no wall You won't kick down,
Lie You won't tear down,
Coming after me.
There's no shadow You won't light up,
Mountain You won't climb up,
Coming after me."
Romantic books and movies take a backseat to the reality of true love. God's love.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
Because of that incredible love, Jesus left heaven and embarked on a search and rescue mission for us. He did it for the young, the old, the rich, the poor. For every person in the world.
God is reaching out to you right now. Do you desire His unconditional, never-ending love?
Pray this simple prayer:
"Jesus, I welcome you into my life. Please forgive my sins. Be my Lord, savior, and friend."
And get ready to experience the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God!
