"And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.  For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ." John 1:16-17

Imagine a universe filled with 350 billion galaxies and 93 billion light years to the edge of it! That is HUGE!

Now, think of a God Who is so powerful and vast that He can fill every square inch of that universe with His presence! This is the One Who spoke that universe into being with His voice and Who maintains its balance by His will.

That same God was Who was in your service this morning was also present at the outer edge of the universe and the inner most places of your soul! Are you impressed yet?

Contemplate this, God, through His Holy Spirit can dwell within people of faith who have received Him - all at the same time! Even as I write these lines He is in me and in you as fully as we allow Him to be.

Blessed yet?

While He dwells simultaneously in every believer He fills each one individually with the precise truth he needs and adequate amount of grace for that moment. It will be different for you and for me but it will be according to our needs!

How about one more crazy love factoid? While is giving you and me the exactly the measures of truth and grace we need ourselves, He can also give me the grace and truth I will need to encourage you!

What sort of love is this?

God's love! A crazy, unconditional, satisfying, fulfilling and transforming love!

If you don't have it you can get it! This love surrounds you and fills the universe! But you can't earn it or purchase it. You can only receive it as a free gift when you repent of your sins and receive Jesus Christ as your Savior!

You would have to be crazy to not receive His crazy love!
