And from far away the Lord appeared to His people and said, "I love you people with a love that will last forever. That is why I have continued showing you kindness."-----Jeremiah 31:3
You know we live in a world where the word "love" is tossed around without any true feelings attached.
To some LOVE is just a passing fancy, it is sometimes used as a bargaining chip, you know, "If you really LOVE me, you will do this or that/"
When God created man He created him with the ability to LOVE and not to abuse that ability by using it as a means to get what one desires and in the process, deeply hurting someone that is the object of that FAKE LOVE. But to use it how God intended it to be used, with a TRUE, SINCERE, and FAITHFUL HEART. A love that will last, "till death do us part."
In this verse we see an EXCELLENT example of the type of LOVE we should have for one another, God says: "I love you people with a love that will last forever." What a difference that attitude would make in the world today, if we would just FOLLOW God's example.
If you are a Child of the Living God you are experiencing that TRUE, EVERLASTING LOVE. If you are not a Child of the Living God, then you are not experiencing it, but you could be experiencing it by: CONFESSING your sins to God, and asking for His forgiveness, telling Him you are sorry for your sins, BELIEVING that Jesus died for you and is ALIVE in Heaven making intercession for you before God, and by ACCEPTING His gift of SALVATION. Do it NOW, while you still can! He's waiting!!
