"Hope in the Lord"
March 8, 2003Email to a FriendPrint
Psalm 130:7-8 "O Israel, put your hope in the LORD, for with the LORD is unfailing love and with Him is full redemption. He Himself will redeem Israel from all their sins."
God draws a powerful image when He uses the ideal love of a husband and wife as an example of His unfailing love for us. He uses the union of husband and wife as a picture of Christ and His bride, the Church. This same picture is used in the Old Testament to describe God and His people, Israel.
But even though some marriages come to the point where love does fail, the love of God for His people never fails. Never. Can we even comprehend that? I'm not sure we can. Nevertheless, unfailing love does exist and it is the love God has demonstrated for us through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And maybe, just maybe, knowing and seeing that kind of love-no matter how incomprehensible-is enough to get us through another day.
