with lovingkindness have I drawn thee

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    From Jeremiah, God has said “Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” It is easy to see that people with similar interests are drawn together. But little consideration is given to the intelligence, attraction or force that makes it happen. Mrs. Eddy has said “Love is a mighty spiritual force.” This is an amazing thing to think about, that God’s great love has drawn us together, the love that draws us together is an everlasting love. Because the love is divine, it is stable and enduring. What wisdom it is to recognize that God’s love holds us together, and our love for God and what He has done will keep us safe and not allow us to venture away from what God has drawn us to.

    Thank you, Bruce! For some reason the meaning of this verse has escaped me all these years. I always interpreted “with lovingkindness I have drawn thee” to mean that God made or designed each one of us individuals with lovingkindness (as if He did it in a drawing!). I now see I just had the wrong meaning of the word “drawn”. I love learning more about God’s love, that you’ve so beautifully illustrated here.
