Is. 25:6 ¶ On this mountain the LORD of hosts will make for all peoples

a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine,

of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined.

Today we will continue our gospel feast. Today’s course is one of the most delightful; we will delight ourselves with His love. God’s love is different from human love, human love has a beginning and an end and also has major conditions. God’s love is unconditional and has no beginning or end. He has loved you before there was a you, before there was an earth, before there was a creation. He has loved you eternally and will love you through eternity. This love describes an intimacy; He has known you and loved you always. He doesn’t fall in love or out of love; His love never ceases. This love is what attracts us to Him, satisfies our hungry heart, and keeps us from the temptations in this life. Charles Spurgeon describes God’s love in his comments on today’s verse.

“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, yet will I not forget you. Behold, I have engraved you upon the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.” Why, beloved, this indeed, is a fat thing! And I may add that it is full of marrow when you remember that not merely has the Lord thought of you from everlasting, but loved you. Oh, the depth of that word, “love,” as it applies to the infinite Jehovah, whose name, whose essence, whose nature is love! He has loved you with all the immutable intensity of His heart—never more and never less—loved you so much that He gave His only-begotten Son for you. He has loved you so well, that nothing could content Him but making you to be conformed into the image of His dear Son, and causing you to partake of His glory that you may be with Him where He is! Come, feed on this, you heirs of eternal life, for here are fat things full of marrow!”

When you read about Jesus in the Bible, love overflows from every page. When you draw near to Him in worship His love pours on you like a heavy rain. His love is constant and available for us all the time. Go ahead and dig in to this gospel feast, every course oozes with the Father’s love. Don’t rush through your meal, take time and taste and see that the Lord is good.
