We thank You, Lord, that ‘Your love endures for ever’. What a great message this is! It’s a message worth repeating – over and over again! Your love is an everlasting love – ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love’ (Jeremiah 31:3). Your love is an unfailing love – ‘My unfailing love for you will not be shaken’ (Isaiah 54:10). We ‘give thanks’ to You for Your love (Psalm 136:1-3,26). In Your love, You have provided for us ‘an everlasting salvation’. Your ‘salvation will last for ever’ (Isaiah 45:17; 51:6). Lord, Your Word tells us about those who refuse to love You – ‘Pharaoh… great kings… mighty kings …’ (Psalm 136:15,17-20). Your Word tells us that those who reject Your love will not receive ‘eternal life’. Their future will be very different – the ‘raging fire that will consume the enemies of God’ (John 3:16-18; Hebrews 10:26-27). Why, Lord, do You speak to us about Your righteous judgment? You’re speaking to us Your strong Word of warning. You’re leading us away from the way of unbelief and into the way of faith. You’re leading us to embrace Your precious promises, the promises which speak to us of Your eternal  salvation. Help us, Lord, to listen and learn – as we hear Your Word, with its stern warnings and its wonderful promises. Help us to see our sin. Help us to bring it to our Saviour. Help us to receive His forgiveness.
