“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Though our love fails for each other and for God quite often, God’s love never fails. God’s love is fully patient, His love is full of kindness. His love does not envy, it does not boast, and His love is not proud. His love never dishonors others and He does not seek to please Himself. He is not easily angered and He keeps no records of our wrongs. He does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. His love always protects, trusts, hopes, and perseveres. God’s love never fails… 1 Cor 13:4-8
“Your love never fails, never gives up, never gives up on me.”
What an amazing God we have that, in spite of ourselves, God’s love keeps Him pursuing us and transforming us. He never gives up on us, though at times, we may want to give up on ourselves. Thank you, Jesus, for your robe of righteousness that we do not even deserve!
