1 Chronicles 4:24-5:26; Ezekiel 7:1-27; John 1:19-51

He brought me into his banqueting house and his banner over
me was love. Song of Solomon 2:4

Could we put it this way? His banner over me—Love! His love
is always there, despite our doubts at times. Jeremiah reminds
us that it is an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3); the psalmist, that He
has set His love upon us permanently (Ps. 91:14). John declares
that the Lord fully loves His own unto the end (John 13:1) and
Paul says that nothing shall ever separate us from that love (Rom.
8:39). He who called us in love (Eph. 1:4-5) has also brought us into
His house with a banner of love that will never be removed or replaced.
Let us never forget this reassuring truth. —Mark Kolchin

Things future, nor things that are now, not all things below or above,
Can make Him His purpose forego, or sever my soul from His love.
—A. Toplady
