God’s boundless promise

Posted on April 16, 2020 by ELCA Youth Gathering

 

Every day is an adjustment. As we continue to lean into the discomfort and the unknown of this pandemic, let us remember what we do know. We know that God’s love for us is boundless. God’s love cannot be measured. We know that God’s boundless promise, no matter the darkness, is that Christ prevails.

Let us remember the Gathering’s scripture from Ephesians 3:14-21 CEV:

14I kneel in prayer to the Father. 15All beings in heaven and on earth receive their life from [God]. 16God is wonderful and glorious. I pray that [God’s] Spirit will make you become strong followers 17and that Christ will live in your hearts because of your faith. Stand firm and be deeply rooted in [God’s] love. 18I pray that you and all of God’s people will understand what is called wide or long or high or deep. 19I want you to know all about Christ’s love, although it is too wonderful to be measured. Then your lives will be filled with all that God is. 20-21I pray that Christ Jesus and the church will forever bring praise to God. [God’s] power at work in us can do far more than we dare ask or imagine. Amen.
