LOVE NEVER FAILS
What is the best expression of love that describes how big love is, how much you love someone? Maybe “I love you to the moon and back.” Here is God’s: “Love never fails.”
Notes And Next Steps
1 Corinthians 13:1-8 + Part 3 of the series “Victorious"
I promise that this week, some very good things or people you love will fail you. How will you respond?
The failure of love isn’t the problem; rather, our faulty interpretation of the failure is our problem.
“If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it … we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” (Daniel 3:17,18)

- Reflect in prayer on this and fill in the blank. Discuss with Christian friends. “One of my personal weaknesses is my faulty interpretation of [someone or something I love] when that person or thing fails me.” How can this temptation draw you closer to Jesus? What is your next step? Can Psalm 27 help?
- In what different ways did the love of three men for God change the attitude and behavior of a king? Read Daniel 3.
- Pray for a friend who needs Jesus, and an opening to speak with them about love that never fails. And maybe show them that love, too.
