BIBLICAL FATHERHOOD--THE GREAT NEED OF THE WORLD 7z-26) HE HAS A GENERATION MINDSET-- ROLE MODELING LOVE THAT "ENDURES ALL THINGS" (1 Corinthians 13:7) continued. NEN OF UNFAILING LOVE.

Men, no matter how bleak and stormy the horizon of life may appear, never give up loving. Even when the object or objects of your love refuse to acknowledge your acts of love, and you are forced to be shut out of their lives, never stop being a loving person. The rejecters of your love are the losers. But, you can be the winner because you never give in to hate, spite, and a host of evil things that the rejecters of love get into.

We need to remember that there are many that reject God's love and are the worst off for doing so. One could easily think that God's love failed. It is true that some fail to give the correct response, but no one in hell will be able to point the finger at God and say, "God, you did not love me." God has only to point their attention to Calvary's cross to show them how much He loves. God never gives up on HIs love. I do not for one moment think that God enjoys to see even one sinner in hell. God's love never fails. The rejecters of Christ are the rejecters of His unfailing love.

Did God give up loving Israel when he turned His love toward the Gentiles? No. Isaiah 49:15-16 says, "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me." And Romans 11:1 says, "Hath God cast away his people? God forbid... God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew."

Even when your love may have been despised and rejected for a long time and you have had to turn to others who will receive your love, never give up loving. Never permit the battle you are going through to turn you into an unloving and unforgiving person. Your love in Christ is forever unfailing. It is forever forgiving. In some cases it may be forever rejected, but rejection has no authority to change you and stop Christ's love in you from always flowing.

Be encouraged.
