Ephesians 2:4 (KJV)
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
It happens that I read today both Ephesians 3 and Psalms 136. The literary style of the Psalm is poetic as it drives home, in 26 verses, that, “His mercy endureth forever.” Now this verse in Ephesians gives us the reason for His mercy; “His great love wherewithal He loves us.”
As enduring as is His mercy, His love for us is that great. It is unending, inexhaustible and eternal. God’s love extends to:
- The Jew and the Gentile
- The saved and the lost
- The child and the adult
- The male and the female
- The faithful and the unfaithful
- The obedient and the disobedient
No doubt, the desire of God, and the purpose for the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the saving of souls and the sanctification of the saved. But God’s love is greater than our relationship with Him and therefore His mercy endures our sin to give us, over and again, opportunities to make right our walk with Him.
