Can you imagine the experience of knowing immeasurable love? I know; you do experience it because Jesus loves you. But I mean, knowing it deeply.
Deeper love can be received, but only after we freely give that measure of love that we know from God, to others.
Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”Yeshua Lk 6:38
Yes, this applies to Godly love more than anything. And more than to other things, in that Godly love is ultimate over all things; for God is love.
Immeasurable love is not cheap, and we must buy it to give it away. Though without cost in the monetary sense, it cost our flesh its self-centered life. It cost our preoccupation with self-gratification. Preoccupation gets laid down and left behind to care about God and neighbor.
Greater love has no one than this, that one should lay down his life for his friends.Yeshua Jn 15:13
Hmm, having this “greater love,” cost me the very limited worldly life I had achieved, and which I wanted more of. But the return is immeasurable love: love to give and to receive; love more satisfying than anything I could have achieved in a thousand years; love that is the presence of God; living, loving, in and through me.
