The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: Joshua 4:1-9 // Psalm 98

“Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for his steadfast love endures forever.”
Psalm 136:3

Unfailing Love

We may think that skyscrapers will stand forever, but there is not anything made by human hands that is permanent. Towering mountains appear immovable, but God’s Word assures us that one day, when the Lord of lords returns, they will all crumble. In the middle of change and decay, we come face to face with God’s love and find it to be unchanging, uncrumbling, undimmed – yes, altogether unfailing. God’s saving love in Jesus Christ is enduring and preserving. The unfailing love of God is demonstrated in that while we were still lost and dead in sin, Jesus Christ died for our salvation.
This is love that no wall can hold back. The devil cannot hold it in check. Our obstinate plunge into self-indulgent sin cannot destroy it. God’s love sent Jesus. He came and walked the dusty rocky paths of Israel and accomplished to perfection the will of the heavenly Father. Jesus gave Himself up to be nailed to the cross, to die in our place, then to rise again, promising to be with us forever. Yes, give thanks to Him – the Lord of lords. His love truly endures forever.

Lord Jesus Christ, help us always to remember that your love never fails. Amen.
