SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/07- “The LORD Is Loving And Kind—Towards His Own!” (Jeremiah 31:3)
Premise Question: Can someone come to The LORD, on their own, without first being drawn to Him, with His never failing, everlasting love?
“Long ago the LORD said to Israel: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.”
(Jeremiah 31:3 NLT)
The LORD GOD Almighty Himself has shown up in times past, by making His manifest presence known and visible to us, in order to declare, as well as, express, His deep, heartfelt disposition and strong propensity towards us, which is: “I have loved you, I do and will continue to love you, and I shall always love you—My very own, dearly beloved, greatly treasured, precious children, with an unfailing, endless, boundless, enduring beyond and throughout all time and extended to all generations, everlasting love. For I have, Myself, personally and deliberately, enticed and allured you with My powerfully attractive, never changing kindness—that’s inexhaustible, constantly reliable, benevolently affectionate, full of gracious favor, and shall always be faithfully indulgent towards you.” (Jeremiah 31:3 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Papa God has shown us, all of humankind, His unique and greatly beloved creation, just how much He loves us, by kindly sending His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world, to take our place, in order to pay for each of our sins, so that we can have the wonderful opportunity of taking advantage of His merciful and most gracious gift of salvation and eternal life; that our loving Papa God has made available to everyone, through the offering of His Only Son upon the cross.
This actually, is what real, authentic, love looks like: He, The LORD, who is the personification of real love, first loved us, with His perfect love, that casts out all fear, as it is an everlasting love and one that shall never disappoint nor fail us in anywise; in regards to why He has openly put His lavish love on display, for all to see, which is His strong loving disposition and great propensity shown towards and shared personally with each one of us.
Finally, remember the very words of The LORD, when He said that no one can come to Him unless Papa God, His Father, the one who sent Jesus to the world, draws them to Him. And furthermore, Jesus also said, that when He is lifted up before the world, (which is part of our divine call and mission as members of The Company of The Redeemed) that He would then draw everyone unto Himself!
So, no! Unless someone is first drawn to The LORD, by and through the unfailing and everlasting love of Papa God, then one can not, nor do they even have the capability to come to The LORD on their own, except, but for the love of Papa God that compels us all to come to His Son, for deliverance from sin, salvation and everlasting joy and eternal life! Blessings…
