What A Love!

Stop for a moment and consider the amazing love of God:

"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!" (1 John 3:1).  The word John uses, potapos, means 'of what kind'.  Here it may have the meaning, 'of what a size!' In fact potapos is from the earlier classical Greek podapos, which means, 'from what country'. Perhaps that captures John's meaning - he is talking about a love that belongs to another country, or world altogether!...It is...incredible that God should make us his children!
