Love to the Uttermost

To love to the uttermost is to love freely, without reserve or limit, and without flaw or failure. Love to the uttermost is unquenchable, unstoppable, and resolute. As we watch his arrest and trial and death unfold for eight days, we gaze on a Christ who begrudges no pain or reproach on his pathway to redeem lost sinners. This is the man who “humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:8). This is love to the uttermost.

As I look toward our observation of Jesus’ death and resurrection this coming Easter weekend, I have been encouraged by Desiring God’s devotional ebook Love to the Uttermost. It’s a week’s worth of devotions that aim to “serve anyone who seeks a steadied gaze to watch our Savior as he loves us to the uttermost.” A steadied gaze. I like that. I want that.

I encourage you to download Love to the Uttermost. No matter your platform it’s available for free here. Each day’s reading is brief yet powerful as it points us to the passion of our Savior who loved us freely, without reserve or limit, with a love that is unquenchable, unstoppable, and resolute. Hallelujah, what a Savior!
