“Your Love is Extravagant” – Musical Musings in March


Good morning! It’s so good to be back with you my friend. Thanks for your patience while I was away. I’m always amazed at the faithfulness of those who read my blog. I pray many blessings upon you today!


IMAG1492Because I’ve been away, I haven’t been able to speak to the time period that envelopes us today. We are on Tuesday of Holy Week. Jesus entered into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and spent His final week with His disciples, religious leaders and with His heavenly Father.


During this week, Jesus prepared Himself and His followers for the events that would take place later in the week. But as we know, Jesus’ followers and the religious leaders didn’t like what they heard. In the end, the disciples were disappointed, the religious leaders felt justified, Jesus died on a cross and everyone from that time forward (including you and I) became recipients of extravagant love.


John 3:16-17 (The Voice) gives us insight into God’s amazing love. “For God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life. Here’s the point. God didn’t send His Son into the world to judge it; instead, He is here to rescue a world headed toward certain destruction.”


God’s plan was and is to redeem mankind from destruction. Left on our own, that’s how the story would have ended. But God loved mankind so much, with such an extravagant love, that He was willing to send Jesus, His only Son to rescue us from that certain outcome.


There are many times that I get caught up in my own little world and I forget the sacrifice God and Jesus made for me. How selfish and unappreciative I can be!


So today, I want to bask in the extravagant love of my Father. But I want to do more. I want to be transformed by His Spirit. I want to live a holy life. I want to lead others to the throne of grace. I want to make a difference in this world. By accepting the extravagant love of the Father, I am also asked to share His love with others.


I pray that your day is filled with opportunities to share God’s extravagant love with others. I can guarantee that if you look, you will find someone to point to Jesus.


The song I share with you today is called “Your Love is Extravagant.” Enjoy!


Your love is extravagant

Your friendship, it is intimate

I feel like moving to the rhythm of Your grace

Your fragrance is intoxicating in our secret place

Your love is extravagant


Spread wide in the arms of Christ is the love that covers sin

No greater love have I ever known You considered me a friend

Capture my heart again[i]
