I have loved thee with an everlasting love. Jer 31:3
What a beautiful adjective! everlasting – lasting forever.
The watch we wear, the food we eat, the medicine we take, our passports & visas, the list goes on. Everything has an expiry date coz they are man made. But, if you see what God made – the heaven and the earth, the sun, moon and stars, day & night, they are forever. What about man? Is man an eternal being or is there an expiry date for man too? Many people say that death is the end of man,BUT the BIBLE says there is life after death either in Heaven or in Hell.
We are saved coz, The Everlasting Father (Isa 9:6) has shown his Everlasting kindness (Isa 54:8) on us by sending the Everlasting Gospel (Rev 14:6) so that we might have Everlasting life (Jn 3:16) and escape the Everlasting fire (Matt 25:41) filling us with Everlasting joy (Isa 51:11).Trusting in his Everlasting covenant (Eze 37:26) and with an Everlasting name (Isa 56:5), we now look forward to the appearance of our Everlasting King (Jer 10:10) who will take us to the Everlasting kingdom (Dan 4:3).
ONLY an Everlasting GOD (Isa 40:28) can do all these because of his Everlasting love (Jer 31:3) which he has loved us with. But for his love we would have been destined for Everlasting punishment (Matt 25:46).
May we all join the psalmist saying Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen – Psa 41:13.
