Lam. 3:22-24 The unfailing love of the Lord never ends!


Lam. 3:22-24  The unfailing love of the LORD never ends!  By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction.  Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day  I say to myself, “The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!”

The unfailing love of the Lord never ends!  Isn’t that great news?!!  It is the best news that man could ever hear.  The Lord never fails to love, because He is love.  Satan tries hard to convince us that we are not loved or worthy to be loved, but what he says is nothing but a lie from hell.  God is not able to do anything but love us.  Now, this does not mean that God will embrace us in His love regardless of what we do or become in life. 

God is holy love.  He will never embrace those who defy Him or live unholy lives.  God is absolutely perfect in holiness and no sin will ever get near Him.  God does not ever condone the sin of His children.  He never ignores sin or overlooks it.  All sin must be dealt with by Christ before we can be embraced by God.  Only Christ’s righteousness in us makes us approachable to God.  We must never be presumptuous and take our sin lightly.  Our only hope of drawing near to God is Christ’s righteousness and holiness.

God is merciful and faithful.  Every day is a testimony of God’s mercy towards us and His faithfulness to us.  If it were not so, no one would be left on earth to live for Him.  Heaven would be an unreachable place.  No one would be able to see God, let alone experience Him in their lives.

As God’s children, we inherit the righteousness and holiness of Christ so we have a sure hope that we will be with God some day.  Great is God’s faithfulness to us and He will see us home to be with Him.  But, we must cooperate with Him and strive to live holy lives.  We must not cater to sin or ignore it when we do sin.  We must stay in close fellowship with Christ by confessing our sins and being fixated on Him.  We must strive to live obediently to God’s Word and seek to please Him in all we do.  Heaven awaits those who do these things.
