Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:3 Character is measured by the love and faithfulness we genuinely display in our daily lives. These are simple virtues that we cannot fake. Love is displayed when we choose to treat others, even those we are not able to love, with kindness and genuine concern. Faithfulness is being a person of truth — genuine and trustworthy in word and deed. These virtues need to be a part of our everyday lives. When we live like this, people will see God in you and God will be pleased.

God’s love is all about Him loving us perfectly, and giving up His Son for us. It is not about us earning His love.
Do you know how the Word of God defines love? Apostle John said, “In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loves us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1 John 4:10). This is the Bible’s definition of love. It is not about our love for Him, but rather His perfect love for us.

Jesus sets the pattern for burden bearing. He calls to Himself all who are heavy-laden and gives them rest (Matthew 11:28-29). Since God wants us to conform to Christ’s likeness, we must imitate His care and concern for those who suffer. Acts 4:32 shows that the early church followed His example. To lift the load of poverty and despair, they pooled their resources so that no one was in need. A believer cannot wait until his life is clear of obstacles before reaching out to others, since that day may never come. Even though we have our own needs, we can still reach out to someone who is going through adversity.

Maybe, you are wondering how God could still love you because of what you have done. When children fail or do things they aren’t supposed to do, parents may be disappointed, and they may discipline them, but their love for their child never changes, waivers or fails. If you read Hosea 11, you will understand the love of our God. Israel failed many a times. But God kept pursuing them relentlessly. Even though they were unfaithful to Him, He kept loving them unconditionally. Such is His unfailing love. God’s love is not based on what you have done but based on what Jesus did on the cross. People may have rejected you and hurt you, not God- He is love, He will always love you. His love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:8)

Psalm 13:5 ‘But I trust in Your unfailing love. I will rejoice because You have rescued me.’
Trusting with our whole hearts is what the Lord requires of us. We can trust in Him regardless of how the odds are stacked against us. We can trust because we know that He loves us with an unfailing love. We can rejoice because He will not abandon us, but He will rescue us!
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for your great love for me. Thank You that Your love will never fail me. You will be my strength and bring me through to celebrate Your goodness in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7
How could we ever live up to these standards? It’s impossible. It wasn’t easy for Jesus either. He didn’t feel like going to the cross. But He made a conscious decision to do so because He loves us that much.
Godly love is simply saying, “Lord, You know I am not this way. I am not always thinking the best of every person. I am not always well-mannered. I am not always kind. I am not always longsuffering. But, Lord, I acknowledge my weakness and I want to change.” Romans 5:5 says, “The love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit.” Therefore, He will help us live a life of love.

“God is love.” 1 John 4:9-11, “.This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
At Christmas, we understand that God loved us so much that He came to live with us in the person of Jesus. That love now inspires us to live as Jesus did in this world, loving God by loving each other. Love is the greatest gift of all! Let’s give it away freely.

Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14
What difference would it make if we truly grasped the fact that there are no guarantees about what tomorrow holds?
I suspect we would be a lot quicker to forgive. I think we would be much more apt to consider the needs of others around us. We’d say “I love you” more often and prioritize people over things and duties. I think we would spend a lot less time pursuing things that don’t matter and care a lot more about eternity and the people around us.
“Love like there’s no tomorrow, and if tomorrow comes, love again.“ (Max Lucado)

Ephesians 3:18

‘May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is.’
Let me remind you that you are valuable and precious to God and He loves you. His love for you is so great that our finite mind cannot comprehend it. You need His help and power to grasp and understand it. His love is limitless, beyond explanation and filled with compassion and mercy.His love reaches above the highest heights and below the deepest valleys.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for Your GREAT love towards me. I pray that You would give me the power to begin to understand how great and awesome Your love for me is! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
