God is for you and loves you with a Never Stopping, Never Giving up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.
Sally Lloyd-Jones, The Jesus Storybook Bible
One of the best things about God is who He is, Love. He is relentless in His pursuit of us. The quote above is one of my favorites from the JSB. In this quote she states so simply yet powerfully the veracity with which God loves us.
His love is never stopping. This shown in countless stories. Even when God would’ve been justified to leave us alone or completely destroy us, He didn’t. He kept loving us.
Never Giving Up
Relentless. His love is undaunted even while we turn a blinded eye and a hardened heart to His expressions of love. He continues to show His intent toward us.
1 Corinthians 13:7 in the Amplified Version states that “ Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].” God’s love isn’t blind, it’s wide-eyed, and fascinated on us in all our ugliness. Yet, He doesn’t shudder at the weight of our sin that we place on Him.
Alway and Forever Love
This love that God is, is Him. He is forever. He is always. Therefore, His love for us is without end and will last as long as He exists. This thought alone should put us at a continual rest and ease.
