Everlasting Love

Today’s Verse:

The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. ~Jeremiah 31:3

 

Today is Valentine’s Day in most of the Western world. There is a special emphasis on the love that married couples have towards each other. As Christians, it should cause each of us to pause and consider the love that God has for us. At a very dark moment in the history of Judah, God reminded the prophet Jeremiah how much He loved His people.


God’s love is an unceasing love.

“I have loved thee with an everlasting love.” This is a “forever love.” It is continuous with no interruption. It is timeless and eternal. Nothing can change God’s love from being perpetual and forever. It is a pledge of permanence. Everlasting spans throughout eternity.


God’s love is an unconditional love.

God’s love is not fickle. It does not love us based on a set of conditions. It is unrestricted and boundless. It is far-reaching and ever merciful. There are no boundaries in God’s love. In spite of how we have sinned against God, God loves us. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Peter Mackenzie, a Methodist preacher of a generation ago in England, preached an early sermon from John 3:16. Gipsy Smith tells us that the preacher said after announcing the text, "There are two striking things in my text: When God loves, He loves a world. When He gives, He gives His Son." Such is the boundless love of the eternal Father of mankind. [Sunday School Times]


God’s love is an unbelievable love.

When we read Jeremiah 31:3 in the context of Judah’s idolatry and complete failure to honor God, it is amazing that God would say, “I have loved thee with an everlasting love.” We measure love based upon how others treat us. God, on the other hand, loves us in spite of our failures. It is so unbelievable that the greatest sacrifice in love was when God sent Jesus to die for our sins. This was the ultimate exhibit of love: Christ died for every sinner.


God’s love is an understandable love.

We must realize that God’s love for us is something that we do not deserve. His incredible love is an impetus for us to live a victorious Christian life. It should cause us to love Him with a sacrificial love. Anything that God would call upon us to do is so small in comparison to how much He loves us. We can never outlove the Lord!


Take a moment today to rejoice in how much God loves you. Then, pour out your heart to Him and let Him know how much you love Him. Let the Lord know that you love Him with all your heart and rejoice that “he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”


Have a love-enriched God Morning!
