Thank you for joining me as we continue journeying through The Scripture Series and diving into the Bible this week to look at verses that detail God’s unfailing love.
We’ve all been hurt by someone we care about, whether that be a friend, relative, or fellow believer. The sting of betrayal is painful and not something that is easily overcome.
But there is One who will never betray us. He will never walk away from us when times get tough. He will never betray our confidence, share our most precious secrets, give up on us, spread gossip about us, or leave us for someone “better”. This is good news in a fickle world where most of us are just one step away from “offending” someone and losing their friendship.
God’s unfailing love can be difficult to grasp. Yet His love is boundless, steadfast, and inexhaustible. It is eternal. And as Romans 8:38-39 tells us, nothing (emphasis on that word!) can separate us from His love. Nothing. Nada.
Nothing we can ever do, or will ever do, can stop Him from loving us. He is forgiving, patient, and merciful. As His children, we are cherished, valued, and precious. So precious, in fact, that He paid a high price for us – the death of His Son, Jesus Christ for our sins. May we never take such a costly gift for granted.
Be blessed by the fact that God’s love is faithful and enduring.
I am convinced that nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~ Romans 8:38-39
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; his love endures forever. ~ 1 Chronicles 16:34
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down ones life for one’s friends. ~ John 15:13

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. ~ Galatians 2:20
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~ Romans 5:8
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. ~ John 10:11
And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. ~ Romans 5:5
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God. ~ 1 John 3:1This is love; not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. ~ 1 John 4:10
