Unfailing Love

Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:8

Love’s failure rate is zero. It has never scored a grade of “F” on any life exam. There is a 100% guarantee when love is applied it will succeed. For example, love finds a person stuck in their sins and woos them back into a loving relationship with the Lord and their loved ones. It finds a way to work things out when a disagreement erupts over conflicting opinions. Yes, love by nature is set up for success, it is always reliable. Love is the default behavior for Jesus followers.

We love ourselves when we die to ourselves. Indeed, we are set up for success as servants of Jesus when our love is other centered. So in marriage we seek to out serve each other, we value our spouse’s needs above our own. Our selfless love brings out the best in our mates. Yes, we migrate from a motivation of having our way to a satisfaction in seeing it their way. Successful marriages are built on selfless love. We are blessed, when we choose to first bless our best friend.

Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him. John 12:24-26, ESV

Is your language laced with love? Are your actions accompanied by love? If so, you are a raving success in God’s eyes. Look for ways to love and you will never lack opportunities to love. Be a successful lover of the Lord and people you will be energized by obedience to God’s greatest commands. Everyday you love is everyday you succeed for your Savior. Today, in Jesus name, love every human being you meet at their point of need. Why? Because He first loved you!

The Lord’s love doesn’t fail for one-second. You may feel like a failure, but His love lifts you up to live another day for Him. Your circumstances will not consume you, because Christ’s love is your protection. Like a fire retardant blanket the love of God shields you from the fiery flames of fear. If you run away, His love does not stay away. When you make mistakes, His mercies are new every morning. You succeed when you are loved by your Heavenly Father’s unfailing love!

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. Lamentations 3:22

 

Prayer: Heavenly Father thanks for loving me to be a lover on Your behalf.
