v 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Genuine love is a powerful motivator, and can never be persuaded to abandon the person who is loved; it endures through every circumstance. There are two facets to that – the first is that God, who is Love, will never let go of the one He loves. You may be passing through difficult days and wondering what God’s love means for you right now. You may even wonder if it is worth persevering with following Jesus. So much easier to roll over and give up you might think! But God won’t let go of you that easily, He hangs in with you and has promised to see you through every circumstance. That’s the nature of His love for you, and you can trust Him.
Then second, you will not find it easy to abandon the One you love. You know the truth about Jesus loving you and dying for you, you know deep in your spirit that His love is life itself, and when the chips are down you know that His love wins.
