He loved them unto the end

He loved them unto the end.”

John 13:1

The love of Christ for his elect is immutable and incessant. It is love surpassing thought. There is nothing like it in this world below. The narrow, self-centred thoughts, and words, and deeds of humanity cannot comprehend it. Our Savior knew that his disciples would all soon forsake him. Yet, he loved them to the end. His love for us is from everlasting (Jeremiah 31:3). His love for us is unto everlasting (Romans 8:39). Our Lord Jesus Christ delights to receive sinners and save them by his grace (Luke 15:2). And once he has received a sinner, he will never reject him or cast him away for any reason (John 6:37).
