Loved with everlasting love

I was struck by something Ian Hamilton wrote in his recent article, The Everlasting Love of Christ:

Commenting on God's words in Jeremiah 31:3, "I have loved you with an everlasting love," Vos wrote, "The best proof that He will never cease to love us lies in that He never began" (Redemptive History and Biblical Interpretation, ed. By Richard B. Gaffin, p.298).

We often think of God's everlasting love as stretching into the future, but forget that eternity doesn't begin now. That certainly is a love without breadth, length, height or depth (Eph 3:17-19).
