Unchanging Love

"As the Father loves the Son, in the same manner Jesus loves His people. He loved Him without beginning, and thus Jesus loves us. 'I have loved thee with an everlasting love.' You can trace the beginning of human affection; you can easily find the beginning of your love to Christ, but His love to us is a stream whose source is hidden in eternity. God the Father loves Jesus without any change. Christian, take this for your comfort, that there is no change in Jesus Christ's love to those who rest in Him. Yesterday you were on the mount and you said, 'He loves me;' today you are in the valley of humiliation, but He loves you still the same."
-Spurgeon
