Love never fails.
I Corinthians 13:8
Love never fails, and as some bible versions say, “Love never ends.” Because love is a basic attribute of God and because God is eternal, love will also be eternal. I trust in a love that existed before the earth was formed, a love that made the ultimate sacrifice for my renewal, a love that triumphs over our shortcomings to be constantly near. This kind of love will never fail.
God chose us, died for us, and will never leave us. God’s love will not fall or falter. Nor can anything we do separate us from God’s eternal love for us.
There is nothing mercurial about love. It is not based on whims, feelings, or passing fancies. Love is rock-solid, intent on benefitting the one loved, regardless of the cost. God’s love never fails, and it never ends.
