An Everlasting Love

An Everlasting Love

God gives us  a word  of comfort  in Jeremiah 31:3,

I have loved you  with an everlasting love;   
Therefore  I have drawn you  with lovingkindness.

There are times we can feel  so far away  from God.     We know we have sinned  and we feel rejected  by the Lord  for our sins.     And,  maybe we have had  to go through some rough times  as a consequence  of our sins.    It just doesn’t seem  like He should ever want us back  in His arms — under His protective care.

But,  the LORD  always wants us back — no matter what  we have done.    He loves us  with an everlasting love”.     God does not stop loving us  because we have sinned.     Instead,  He is always lovingly reaching out  to us  with words of forgiveness,  kindness,  gentleness,  mercy,  hope — beckoning us  to reconsider the differences  between the road we’re on  and the road  we should be on — beckoning us  to remember how Jesus willingly died  to pay  for our sins.

As we remember  how God’s love  is everlasting,  we can remember  that His love  in Christ  truly gives us forgiveness  and the help we need — all for the sake  of Jesus’ suffering  and death.     We need  to be led  onto the right path.     We need  to hold onto  our heavenly Father’s hand  throughout our lives.     His lovingkindness  will keep us safe  as we put our trust  and faith  in His almighty,  “everlasting love”.

God’s love  for us  is dependable.     We are His children,  so as we return  to Him,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     My Father,  thank You  for always watching  over me.     Keep me safe  in Your everlasting arms.”

Love,
Margaret
