Plus Ultra

If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants. - Isaac Newton

In Matthew Henry’s reflection on Ezekiel 47 he mentions that the image of the water flowing from the Temple is a picture of God's overwhelming grace moving further and further out into the world. He says "Grace in the soul is still pressing forward; it is an active principle, plus ultra—onward still, till it comes to perfection."

The phrase 'plus ultra' means 'further beyond' and is now the national motto of Spain. I think this is a lovely picture of how God's love and mercy will go further than we can ever imagine and we should never limit the action of God's love.

What does it mean for you to think of God's love beyond what we can comprehend right now?

How can we take God's love 'further beyond?'

Living in Grace
