Day Five: “Yea, God is Love”

5  For the LORD is good.
                  His unfailing love continues forever,
                  and his faithfulness continues to each generation. (Psalm 100.5)

“Verse 5. For the Lord is good. This sums up his character and contains a mass of reasons for praise. He is good, gracious, kind, bountiful, loving; yea, God is love. He who does not praise the good is not good himself. The kind of praise inculcated in the Psalm, viz., that of joy and gladness, is most fitly urged upon us by an argument from the goodness of God… Everlasting mercy is a glorious theme for sacred song. And his truth endureth to all generations. No fickle being is he, promising and forgetting. He has entered into covenant with his people, and he will never revoke it, nor alter the thing that has gone out of his lips. As our fathers found him faithful, so will our sons, and their seed for ever. A changeable God would be a terror to the righteous, they would have no sure anchorage, and amid a changing world they would be driven to and fro in perpetual fear of shipwreck… Our heart leaps for joy as we bow before One who has never broken his word or changed his purpose… Resting on his sure word, we feel that joy which is here commanded, and in the strength of it we come into his presence even now, and speak good of his name.” (C. H. Spurgeon)

Let’s pray: Lord, you are good. Your unfailing love continues forever. Your faithfulness continues in each generation. Thank you for who You are and revealing Yourself to us! In Jesus’ name, amen.
