The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
Jeremiah 31:3 NIV

We have known, as a church and individually, the unfailing kindness of the Lord over so many years and that is a wonderful thing to know. If, as this verse seems to say, his kindness is a result of his everlasting love then we can be sure that it will continue forever because everlasting means it does not ever stop or run out – it’s everlasting!!! This is a very simple and obvious observation but what a magnificent and life transforming truth it is to carry in our hearts.

Such love! Such grace!
Makes the pieces come falling into place
Breaks through the darkness
Turns on the light
Making blindness give way to sight
Your love has conquered
Has set us free
To become all You’ve called us to be
Healing the wounded, making us stand
Bringing peace and a sword in our hand
And no power in the universe
Can separate us from the love of God
We’re Yours forever
With nothing to fear
Willing slaves to the love that brought us here.
