He Loves You With An Everlasting Love

Last week, I met a few friends for lunch.  One of them brought us friendship gifts.  Mine is a little box filled with 101 Favorite Bible Verses for Women. The first one I pulled out was from Jeremiah 31:3.  It is a reminder of God's everlasting love.  He loves me.  He loves you.  He loves us with an everlasting love.

I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with lovingkindness. - Jeremiah 31:3

What does this mean exactly?

Let's start with the definition of the word "everlasting."  Everlasting means:

*lasting forever; eternal

*lasting or continuing for an indefinitely long time

*incessant; constantly recurring

*wearisome; tedious

*eternal duration; eternity

*the everlasting, God

He loves you with an everlasting love.
This unframed scripture print is available here.

Let's let our minds dwell on the definition for a minute - lasting forever, constantly recurring,  eternal duration. 

He loves you forever.  He constantly loves you.  He loves you for eternity.

Sister in Christ, there is nothing you can do, nothing you can say, nothing you can think that will stop God from loving you.  He is a just God, yes.  He requires obedience but our shortcomings won't keep Him from loving us. He is the God who was, the God who is, and the God who always will be.  He is the God who loved you yesterday, the God who loves you today, and the God who will love you for all your tomorrows.  

Let's take a minute to look at one of the definitions above that I didn't mention in the last paragraph - wearisome, tedious.  This doesn't mean that God grows weary from loving us or that loving us is too hard for him.  It means He loves us through the hard stuff.  He loves us when we are unlovable.  He meets us where we are no matter how messy we become.

He loves us enough to send His only Son to bear the burden of our sin.  We learn in John 3:16 that a relationship with Jesus is the only way to an eternity in Heaven but God loves us enough to have provided us a way to Him.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not die but have eternal life. - John 3:16

Will you rest in this truth today, friend?  Whatever you are facing today, God will meet you there and He will love you with an everlasting love.  

Will you trust Him as your Lord and Savior today?  He not only loves you with an everlasting love.  He draws you with lovingkindness.


He loves you with an everlasting love.
He loves you with an everlasting love.

He loves you with an everlasting love.
