The Eternal Love of God Manifested
The love of God is as eternal as God; it is the love wherewith the Father loved the Son from before the foundation of the world, as He said. To dispel false notions that God is angry, or that He has forgotten us, we need look no further than the cross of our Lord Jesus, for in it we see the love of God manifested. In love the Father sent the Son to give His all, and redeem the world. Further, He did this for a world that had become His enemy. And more than this, He manifested His love in the sending of His Spirit, for this was the sending forth of the Apostles, the Preachers of Christ; without that we would never have known of this love. Thus, to know that the Apostles and the Preachers have been sent out is further to know of God’s love; and even to know that God sent a preacher to this very place to proclaim His truth faithfully, this too is a manifestation of God’s love. And this love, when one by grace becomes convinced of it, also melts the heart, and the Christian is moved to love Him in return, and to live by this love, for Him and for one another. Sermon for Midweek of Exaudi.
