The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore, with loving kindness have I drawn thee. Jeremiah 31:3
The lyrics to the song ‘Written in Red’ says, “In letters of crimson God wrote His love, on a hillside so long, long ago. For you and for me, Jesus died, and love’s greatest story was told.” God wrote a love letter to the world when He sent His son Jesus to die on the cross for us (John 1:1). His collection of letters has remained throughout the ages, unscathed, and bound in a book specially gifted to us: His children. It is a love story with no ending. The inscription on the inside says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” God. Revival is taking place across the nations in the body of Christ, as He draws His beloved children near. As the last days draw closer, we are called to be a light unto others that are living in darkness, so that they may come to know the love of Christ also. One of the greatest commandments ever given was to love one another (John 13:34). One of the greatest problems in the body of Christ is that we haven’t learned how to love, because we haven’t yet learned to receive it. If we cannot love one another, we cannot be effective in anything we do for God. The bible says that people will recognize that we are His disciples by the love we have for one another (John 13:35). We are the example that the world sees. We are Jesus hands and feet. Love makes the world go around! Yet it’s the hardest thing to do.
Love builds the house; not the nails, or the walls, but the love of God. Without that foundation we can do nothing (John 15:5). Sometimes we fear the love of God, because we have an unhealthy fear of Him (1 John 4:18). If you look deeper into the word of God, you will find the true heart of God. We must seek Him in spirit and truth, and through revelation you will find that the entire theme of the bible is love (Jeremiah. 29:13). If we could grasp what Calvary did, we would see His truest heart. The love of a father, a friend, a brother… He is the great “I AM. And He loves us beyond measure!
I have loved you with an everlasting love. God
