Ephesians 1:4, 5 “For he chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will.”
June 21st is considered the longest day of the year. It all has to do with the Northern Solstice and the alignment of the planets. Funny, I thought the longest day was my first day in Historical Geography while a student at New Orleans Seminary. Sorry Dr. Holmes! Anyway, have you ever thought about the length of God’s love? It’s long enough to last forever.
Ephesians 3:17, 18 “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”
Unfortunately the love we have as humans is different. Human love can fail. That is why there are divorces at an alarming rate, relationship breakups, and conflict. Man’s inability to love as God loves is what causes people to remain estranged from one another. Human love can fail. God’s love can’t.
God will never stop loving you. Even if you chose to reject Him, God will still love you because His love is eternal. He made you to love you. God loves you with an everlasting love. It goes on and on and on.
So many people feel unloved. They have a sense that no one really cares about them. God does. He has proven His love through His son Jesus. The Son of God came to live, die and be resurrected because of God’s vast love.
II Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
Q4U: God is calling. Will you accept His love?
