Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. LOVE NEVER FAILS. (1 Cor 13:4-8, emphasis added)
This passage in Scripture is intended to demonstrate to us the very nature of God. Since God IS love (1 John 4:8, emphasis added), this passage is a revelation of God!
Love (God) has patience with our humanity and our failings. Love (God) is active in presenting all manner of good gifts to us! Love is unselfish and displays good manners and courtesy. Love thinks no evil, but rejoices in the truth, aggressively advertising the good.
God never gives up on people, but He affirms their future. Love endures all things, persevering and remaining loyal to the end. Our Savior—our Intercessor—NEVER FAILS! Praise the Lord most High.
In Matthew 6:9-13, Jesus teaches us how to pray. In verse 10, Jesus says: Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
We are taught by Jesus to pray that God’s kingdom be established here on earth as it is established in heaven. There is no sickness, no disease, no decay, no poverty, and no broken relationships in heaven. God’s will rules heaven perfectly and completely.
As the ambassadors of heaven on earth, we are empowered by God to use the authority of the Name of Jesus to establish His will on the earth (Luke 9:1; 10:19). God’s will is that all should come to repentance and salvation (John 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 3:9).
Salvation comes from the word “sozo.” “Sozo” means to save from the evils which obstruct the reception of the Messianic deliverance. The salvation that Jesus purchased for mankind is designed to save us from EVERY evil that prevents us from receiving God’s deliverance! Hallelujah!
This Word of Truth is applicable to every situation and every compartment of your life: your mind, your spirit, and your body. God is a wonder-working Savior. Praise His beautiful Name! Receive His power and His deliverance today. Praise Him for it and rejoice in it.
