Far and Beyond

07-19-17 3 quoteGod’s love never fails; it is always constant, always strong, always everything we could want, even when we don’t deserve it. Our love for others, even for Him, is fragile and easily disturbed. The smallest word or gesture can cause us to shrink back from those we hold most dear, and even from God. Our love fails.

Therein lies the wonder of God’s love; His love never fails, and one day our love for Him and others will be as perfect as His love. All else will pass away, but love—because God is love—will never cease to be.

Love never fails. But where there are prophesies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge it will pass away. 1 Corinthians 13:8

Where’s the Peace?

 

Peace is the very essence of God’s love, and the ultimate goal. Unfortunately, our peace is often gained or increased by trial and/or discipline, which can be unpleasant or painful.

At times it seems life is just one discipline after another, and we wonder when we will get to the peace. But if we seek God, we will find His peace. Yes, we will always have difficult times, but when God’s peace begins to seep into our hearts and minds, we will be quicker to hand the difficult situations to Him, knowing He is in control.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11
