With Everlasting Love...

Reflections from Rick

I have been reading through Jeremiah in the ESV Study Bible....and finding a very daunting process. But today I read a verse that resonates with my spirit in a way that surprises me. 

Jeremiah 31:3: "...I have loved you with an everlasting love; 
therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you." 

Now I know that God's love for us is one of the most basic tenants of the Bible. But today, it hit me all over again. And I know God is referring to Israel, but I think that it's okay of you and I take it personally. I am also impressed by the idea that God continues His faithfulness to me. the people of Israel have been anything but faithful to God; that is what most of the book of Jeremiah is about. But God chooses to be faithful to unfaithful people; and that includes you and me! 




The ESV Study Bible features more than 2,750 pages of extensive, accessible Bible resources, including completely new notes, full-color maps, illustrations, charts, timelines, and articles created by an outstanding team of 93 evangelical Christian scholars and teachers.
