But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have, for “Their voice has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.” But I ask, did Israel not understand? First Moses says, “I will make you jealous of those who are not a nation; with a foolish nation I will make you angry.” Then Isaiah is so bold as to say, “I have been found by those who did not seek me; I have shown myself to those who did not ask for me.” But of Israel he says, “All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people.”
If you want to see what unconditional love is, just look at God and Israel. They constantly turn away from God and He constantly takes them back. In fact, every time things start going well, Israel turns away from God only to come running back when times are hard. God’s love is so strong that each time He takes them back. If someone treated me they way Israel treated God I know I would have run out of forgiveness long ago. Fortunately God is different.
It does not matter what you do or how bad you are, God will take you back. You cannot do anything that will keep Him from loving you. God loves each of us with a love so strong, a love so forgiving that we cannot begin to understand it. Fortunately, we don’t need to understand how God can love us so unconditionally. All we have to do is accept His love.
Amazing love, how can it be that You, my King, should die for me?
Amazing love, I know it’s true.
It’s my joy to honor You, In all I do, I honor You. (Chris Tomlin)
God’s love, pretty amazing.
Have a blessed day,
