How Deep The Father's Love

How Deep The Father's Love
August 4th, 2014

One of my absolute favorite songs of all time is "How Deep the Father's Love" by Stuart Townend. It is a hymn, but it was written in just the last 25 years. God has spoken to me through the lyrics at several different times in my life. This song has such power.

This, I believe, is because the message is centered around the gospel. And one beauty of the gospel is that it is just as relevant today as it was a hundred years ago or a thousand years ago.

I recorded this simple version of the song in GarageBand a few years ago just because I like it. The lyrics take me to the heart of God. Thinking about the depth of love it takes to give up your only son so that you could redeem a people who won't and can't appreciate it absolutely blows me away. I wouldn't trade my son Judah for anyone or anything. And death on a cross? No way!

And I have only scratched the surface.

The truth of God's love is what I desire people to experience through worship. I hope that I am always pointing to Jesus. His love for us is so good. It is something to sing about, always.

"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!" - 1 John 3:1
