Love is not finite

Love is not finite, Lord,
It grows!

It multiplies, spills over,

From you to us, 
From us to all,

For you are great,
Though we are small;

From us to neighbour,
Stranger, foe,

No matter where we live,
Or go;

Till, like your Son, 
We burn with love –

At one with you,
In heaven above.


The Kingdom of God […] is like a mustard seed planted in the ground. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of all garden plants; it grows long branches, and birds can make nests in its shade (Mark 4:30—32; NLT).

Love your neighbour as yourself (Mark 12:31; NLT).

Love the stranger (Deuteronomy 10:19; NKJV).

Love your enemies! (Matthew 5:44; NLT).

Love flashes like fire, the brightest kind of flame (Song of Songs 8:6; NLT).

I have come to set the world on fire (Luke 12:49; NLT).

He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with fire (Matthew 3:11; NLT).

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT). 

Anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love (1 John 4:8; NLT).
