Fridtjof Nansen was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate who lived from 1861 to 1930. On his first voyage to the Arctic in 1881, he noted the line he was using to measure the depth of the ocean was not long enough. So he tied all his available lines together, but was still unable to touch bottom. In his record Nansen wrote, “Deeper than that.” His words remind us that God’s love is so deep that we can never measure it either. The gospel song affirms, “The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell. It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell.” That beautiful song declares the great truth of John 3:16, “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. “ That amazing love is extended to every one of us today.
