A Covenant of Love
The Lord did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. But it was because the Lord loved you and kept the oath he swore to your ancestors that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.
Not Because of Who We Are
God chose the Israelites as His people because He loved them. It wasn’t because of who they were…it was because of who He is. The same is true today. He loves us because that is who He is. It has nothing to do with who we are.
He has kept that covenant of love and will be faithful to keep it for another thousand generations. Praise His holy name!
