God's Unfailing Love

Great words from C.H. Spurgeon on God's amazing love:

"I have loved you, My people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to Myself!" (Jeremiah 31:3)

"He loved you without beginning. Before years, and centuries, and millenniums began to be counted--your name was on His heart! Eternal thoughts of love have been in God's bosom towards you. He has loved you without a pause; there never was a minute in which He did not love you. Your name once engraved upon His hands--has never been erased, nor will He ever blot it out of the Book of Life.

Since you have been in this world--He has loved you most patiently. You have often provoked Him; you have rebelled against Him times without number, yet He has never stayed the outflow of His heart towards you; and, blessed be His name--He never will. You are His, and you always shall be His. God's love to you is without boundary. He could not love you more--for He loves you like a God; and He never will love you less. All His heart belongs to you!"

"As the Father has loved Me--so have I loved you!" (John 15:9)

Grace upon grace,
