1. When a person sets out to learn about God, that
person begins a journey that will take them down many
paths. God is so great and so magnificent that when a
person travels down one path, they find that it only
opens into numerous other paths, with each additional
path leading into even more numerous paths. It will
not take a person long in his quest to know God to
join with the Psalmist in saying, "Great is the LORD,
and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is
unsearchable" (Psalm 145:3).

2. When a person begins such a quest, it will not be
long that they will come face to face with the love of

take in a quest to know God better it will be
overshadowed by the glorious truth of the love of God.

3. Rudyard Kipling wrote:

If I were hanged on the highest hill,
I know whose love would follow me still.
Mother o'mine, O mother o'mine!

If I were drowned in the deepest sea,

Mother o'mine, O mother o'mine!

If I were damned of body and soul
I know whose prayers would make me whole

thought about the grace of God, the peace of God, and
the longsuffering of God. But no quest to know God
better would be complete without looking at the love
of God. Therefore, I want us to think today about the
love of God.

6. Our text tells us that the love of God has been
shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost. The word
"shed" speaks of being "poured out" and the word
"abroad" speaks of being "manifested." The love of God
has been poured out and manifested in our hearts. By
the work of the Holy Spirit, the love of God has been
made real in our hearts.

7. Let's look at the love of God that has been shed
abroad in our hearts, by first considering:

I. THE CONFIRMATION OF THE LOVE OF GOD!

1. When we think about the love of God we think about
a love that is without question. A child may wonder if
his or her parents love them and a spouse may question
the love of a mate, but one need ...
