God’s love for us did not begin when we believed (1 John 4.19) nor did God’s love begin at the cross. God’s love is from eternity and the reason He has redeemed us drawing us into fellowship with Him. (Jer. 31.3) The perfect life, suffering and death of Christ is a demonstration of His love toward us. (Rom. 5.8) This love is steadfast, consistent and fixed by grace. Trust in the promises of God.
“This covenant, O believer, stands,
Thy rising fears to quell;
Sealed by thy Surety’s bleeding hands;
In all things ordered well.
’Twas made with Jesus, for his bride,
Before the sinner fell;
’Twas signed, and sealed, and ratified;
In all things ordered well.”
