Ok I'm a Presbyterian, so verse memory is not my forte, but when I hear the word "wide" my mind goes immediately to Paul's beautiful statement in the New Testament that goes something like this, " I pray that you may how long and deep and WIDE is the love of Jesus."
I just love the thought of how WIDE Jesus' love is. It give me comfort chills. His love is so big, I can't run to it's borders. I can't stumble out of it's parameters when I'm having a bad day. And there's room. Room not just for me and my foibles, but for countless others and their foibles.
His WIDE love embraces people from all nations and ethnicities. There is no deed too bad to keep someone locked out from this love.
And the bigness and wideness of Jesus love provides a wild and fulfilling adventure for those who submit to it. With something so Wide to follow, everyday is a new storyline full of Kingdom surprises. Who will He bring to me today to invite to share in the Wideness?
