God’s love to His people is infinite.
There is a depth to it which none can fathom;
there is a height to it which none can scale;
there is a breadth to it which defies measurement.
“I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3
How blessed to know that the great and holy God loved His people before Heaven and earth were called into existence, that He had set His heart upon them from all eternity. Clear proof is this that His love is eternal, for He loved them endless ages before they had any being.
Marvelous it is, that One so infinitely above us, so inconceivably glorious, so ineffably holy–should not only notice such worms of the earth, but also set His heart upon them, give His Son for them, send His Spirit to indwell them, and so bear with all their imperfections and waywardness as never to remove His loving-kindness from them!
This steadfast love of the Lord is never removed from His children. Since the believer is in Christ, nothing can separate him from the love of God (Romans 8:39). God has solemnly engaged Himself by covenant, and our sins cannot make it void.
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor My covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 54:10).
Calvary is the supreme demonstration of divine love. Whenever you are tempted to doubt the love of God, Christian reader–go back to Calvary.
“How precious is Your unfailing love, O God!” Psalm 36:7
“May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should–how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.” Ephesians 3:18-19
