Love Like This - Never Fails
Week Four, Day Five
March 29, 2019
Love never fails is the same way of saying that love is eternal. Everything in this world will fade away. All that will remain is love.
1 Corinthians 13:8, says "Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away."
The knowledge that you bring to the table, and every teaching that we hang our hats on, will be categorized as works. Great works, but works nonetheless. Verse 8 of 1 Corinthians is mic-dropping because it is smacking truth into our lives that it does not matter how good we are, or what we do, or what we know. It matters that we care about the world, and we adore the one who saved it. It matters that our hearts beat for salvation that extends to everyone.
At the end of this life, love is all that remains. Perfect love. The love of God who rescues you, and the love that you used to show Christ to the afflicted. Will this leave you empty handed, or are you already overflowing? You decide.
Persevering King of love, you're all we need. We can achieve anything physically and intellectually through your grace and guidance, but we can't take that with us. At a certain point we cease to grow and we are left as a canvas with a clear image on it - showing you clearly what made our hearts beat. God, set our focus on souls. Set our hearts on your children. Amen.
