This scripture is about God’s loyal love. It’s His nature to be faithful and loyal to His people.
The Israelites had experienced this everlasting love before. They knew what it was like to walk with the Lord during their time in captivity in Egypt and through the wilderness years.
That’s the meaning of the phrase “the Lord appeared of old”. The Lord is what we would call ancient because He has always existed. And this phrase also means far away because during the time Jeremiah was writing this verse God had hidden Himself from the Israelites, causing them to wonder where He was.
But that didn’t stop the Lord from loving them and watching over them during this time apart.
And we can rest assured God’s love for us is just as loyal and faithful. He will always be there for us because God loves us with an everlasting love.
What is the meaning of Everlasting Love?
As we just learned in Jeremiah 31, God’s love for us is everlasting.
That means, He loved us from the very beginning of time, and He continues to love us now.
The phases, “everlasting love” and “with loving kindness I have drawn you” are parallels that mean no matter what may happen in life, God will continue to love us and keep us close to Him in His loving embrace.
This is the assurance of faith we have in Him and His love for us.
3 Ways God shows His Love
The love of God can be seen in so many ways if we just look for it.
So, let’s read some Bible Verses about God’s Everlasting Love and see three ways God shows His love for us every day.
#1 God loved us so He sent His Son.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
God wants us to know He loves us! He wants us to feel His love surrounding us every day. And He wants to have a close and personal relationship with us.
Whatever may happen in your life, He will love us. And no matter who may come and go from our lives, He will love us.
In fact, this love is so deep, nothing can separate us from the love of God.
Here’s what the Apostle Paul said about it…
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height not depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God’s love is everlasting. He has always loved us, and He always will. There is nothing that can change that truth or take it away from us.
In this Bible verse from Romans, Paul struggles to find the words to describe just how deep God’s love truly is. And sometimes, we struggle to find God’s love in our lives, especially when times are tough.
Sin once separated us from God. But He promises those of us who are believers, we will never be separated from Him or His love again.
Because of Jesus and His sacrifice, we will always have God’s unfailing, Everlasting Love!
If you’re feeling unloved or struggling to see God’s love in your life, give your life to Jesus and ask Him to save you from your sin. Immediately, God’s everlasting love will be yours forever!
Or if you’re already a member of the family of God and would like to share how God has shown His love toward you, please leave a comment below. I know it will inspire others, and I love hearing from you.
May God bless you! And show you His Everlasting Love today!
