“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).
Perhaps no doctrine in Scripture is as clearly stated as that expressed in our text and in many other passages. God loves us! His love is an “everlasting love,” and compels Him to act strongly and lovingly on our behalf. “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (I John 4:10). This theme finds glorious expression in the grand hymn of the last century entitled “I Am His, and He is Mine.” Its Scriptural basis forms the outline for our next four daily installments. Loved with everlasting love, Led by grace that love to know; Spirit, breathing from above, Thou hast taught me it is so! O this full and perfect peace, O this transport all divine— In a love which cannot cease, I am His and He is mine.
Jesus prayed, “I in them, and thou in me, . . . that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am” (John 17:23,24). The Father will never allow us to part from Him or our Savior.
These precious facts are taught to us by the “inspired” (literally “God-breathed”) Scriptures (II Timothy 3:16), and “the Comforter . . . , the Spirit of truth (who) will guide (us) into all truth” (John 16:7,13). He drew us to Himself “in love: having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself” (Ephesians 1:4,5). “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God” (I John 3:1). In His grace, we come to Him, experiencing sweet forgiveness and everlasting love.
Cradled in the security of His undying love we have peace. “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee” (Isaiah 26:3). JDM
