Jeremiah 31:3 – The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, witnessed with bitterness the degradation and destruction of Judah. His despair over Israel’s sins was assuaged only by the knowledge of God’s everlasting love. We too have sinned and require His love. Without divine lovingkindness we are without hope. May God have mercy and draw us to Him in spite of our rebellion and transgressions for Christ’s sake.
