1 Corinthians 13.4-7 “Love is patient and kind…is not jealous of boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, it is always hopeful, and endured through every circumstance.”
If you’re not sure about what real love looks like, this is it. Love is more than any feeling or any words said, it translates to action. This is what Love does and continues to do.
This is how our Abba continues to show His perfect love towards us: when He allowed His most precious Son to suffer tremendously just so we can be reconciled to Him…we realize how much we have hurt Him, yet He continues to reach out to us… He has never given up and He never will! He wants to continue to show us His goodness (and that’s why He disciplines us when we go off on the wrong track).
Love like this only exists in Him. And the more we allow Him to do His work in our hearts, the more of His love becomes real to us and the more we can experience it in our lives…Then we can reflect His love to others.
His love never fails because God NEVER fails! He will never fail you because He loves you!
“I open my heart to receive more of Your love, Abba. Let my life be a demonstration of Your love.”
