Now That Is Eternal Love!

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9 KJV)

Two of my most favorite verses are Jeremiah 31:3 and John 1:9.  Some years ago I started a program to memorize Bible verses.  These two verses were included in the section “Love of God”.  As I meditated on the verses as I tried to memorize them I was blessed.  I came to realize that God loves us with an everlasting love.  If we choose to reject Him, He still loves us.  His love is so great that He allows us to choose who we want to follow, Him or the world.  It grieves Him when we choose the world because He knows that is the way to eternal separation from Him.  What I feel really shows His love is He will forgive us for rejecting Him.  If we sin, we can go to Him and say we are sorry.  Not only will He forgive us but He cleanses us from all unrighteousness.  No sin is too great that He won’t forgive.  Now that is real love!

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. (Jeremiah 31:3 NIV)
