An Everlasting Love

“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 King James Version

Our love for each other is sometimes a conditional love; the Love of Jesus is unconditional and everlasting. He will Love us forever. It hurts Him when we ignore Him, but He still Loves us. Our beautiful Saviour draws us to Him with lovingkindness.

He sees into our hearts as nobody else can see. He sees the loneliness, despair, heartaches, and hurt. He gently kisses away our tears and applies His healing salve to our wounded hearts. He uses us to be an encouragement to one another and to hug one another for Jesus.

Someone once told me many years ago, “You are so fat and ugly that I am ashamed to be seen with you”. That statement devastated me for years. I am still fat, but praise God I’m not ugly anymore because I have Jesus living in me. When this person told me this, I went to my pastor and he gave me this verse. I have received comfort from this verse countless times over the years.

It does not matter if we are underweight or overweight, Jesus Loves us. He is not concerned with our outward appearance; He is interested in the condition of our hearts. He is looking for a heart filled with love for Him and for people.

How is your heart today? Is Jesus living in your heart? If not, I urge you to give your heart to Him today. Invite the Christ of Calvary into your heart and I promise you that all hell can come against you, but you will have a Peace that only He can give.
