His Love is Extravagant

How can we really put into words the depth and breadth of God's love for us? What human adjectives can describe the kind of love that has been shed abroad in our hearts?  I only know that when I enter the throne room of God and His love and grace wash over me, there are no words to explain what I feel; just that I'm being loved in a pure, intoxicating, holy way.


Here is a song by Darrell Evans called Your Love is Extravagant that attempts to put into words, what God's love for us is like.  I hope you enjoy it.  You can mute my music player to the right to watch this video.




Your love is extravagant
Your friendship intimate
I find I'm moving
To the rhythms 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
Capture my heart again


Deeper than the deepest ocean
Your love is
Higher than the highest mountain
Reaches higher than the Heavens
Still it finds its way to me
Finds its way to me
Your love is extravagant
Your love is extravagant
Your love is extravagant


I hope that during this Christmas season, you are taking time to reflect on the gift of love He has given you by coming to earth in human form, for the express purpose of dying for you.  That, is extravagant intoxicating love, Dear One.  And it's all for you!


From His Lap,

  1. Sometimes it's so hard to comprehend God's infine love for us. Most of the time I just break down in tears because of Him! We can look at our spouses, children, and even ourselves in anger or dislike. But God does not know of those negative feelings! Yes, intoxicating is quite the word to describe it!
