Today I’m continuing my series about verses that have made an impact on me throughout my life. If you want to read part one of this series, click here.
The next verse that really impacted me and was “on repeat” for a season in my life was Jeremiah 31:3:
“Long ago the Lord said to Israel: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.”
Jeremiah 31:3 NLT
I feel like this verse is fairly self-explanatory, so my commentary on it will be short and sweet today. 🙂
I love that the verse begins by saying “long ago”–long ago, God loved us. Now, God loves us. In the future, God will still love us.
God said to His people–that’s us! He has loved us with an everlasting love, one that began long ago and that will outlast our natural lives here on earth.
With an unfailing love–not one that’s conditional or light and momentary. Not an infatuation but a deep and unconditional, unfailing love.
He has drawn us to himself. That is all His doing, His pursuit of me that has brought me to where I am today.
This verse reminded me that God’s love for me is constant, unfailing, from the beginning of time until the concept of time no longer important. And He has the same love for you.
