Love Never Fails

Charity [or love] never faileth.
1 Corinthians 13:8a

God‘s plan for man and woman and for preserving Christian marriage
relationships, in particular, is summed up in a single chapter of the
Bible, 1 Corinthians . When God talks about love, He’s talking about
agape love, the God-kind of love. This love never fails, which means
that there’s no time and no place when it won’t work. A man and a woman
who are citing “irreconcilable differences” as their reason for getting
a divorce don’t have any Word to stand on.

Love suffers long. Real love isn’t a sweet concoction that loses its
power after the first taste or two. The love that anchors marriages for
a lifetime goes way beyond the temporary psychological and biochemical
thrill we call “falling in love.”

Real love doesn’t fade just because wrinkles begin to gather around the
face and middle-age fat deposits begin to gather around the waist. It
lasts through the ravages of time. True love springs from the inner
person.

Envy and pride have fractured the foundations of countless marriages
over the centuries. Rudeness also can create unbearable friction in a
marriage relationship. Love doesn’t have to have its own way. When you
have to have everything done your way in a marriage, you aren’t
extending love towards your spouse; you’re entangling your mate with
control.

Prayer for Today

Father,
I worship You for loving me with agape love, unconditional love. I come
to You with an open heart, asking that Your Spirit empower me to love
others with the God-kind of love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Think on These Things

1 Corinthians 13:13
Galatians 5:6

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

    Hi Bummyla, thanks for the pingback, I have a few heart wisperings of my own to share with you I hope they touch your heart as they did mine.

    God’s Music in the Key of Love touches our innermost Heart in a way that no other music can… How great is our God

    The Love of God has no beginning or end — it is eternal as He is eternal, it is unlike the Ocean, there is no height that it cannot reach or depth that it cannot go, it always Trusts, always Hopes, always Perseveres, keeps no record of wrongs, never gives up and it never fails.

    If there is anyone we cannot Love that means we cannot really Love anyone. Love and Hate cannot co-exist.

    You are never really apart when you hold someone in your heart.

    A man and woman’s’ heart should be so hidden in Christ Jesus that to find each other they need to seek Him first.

    Christian Love Anne

    You are so right in the view of agape love….there is no love like it and we, as mere humans, can only attempt to imitate it in our own lives. It is only through the Spirit that we are able to bring agape love to others, and even then it falls short of how God gives us love. So very thankful I am that I am His and He is mine. May God bless you and keep you always in the palm of His hand. Thanks for your inspiration!!
