We have heard that “God so loved the world that…” – but how can God love a world of people who are so often sinning? How can God love a world with so many people who won’t do anything He says?
What love cannot enjoy, it endures.
Love is patient,
love is kind and is not jealous;
love does not brag and is not arrogant,
does not act unbecomingly;
it does not seek its own,
is not provoked,
does not take into account a wrong suffered,
does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
– 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Even sinners eventually fall asleep or die. Love endures forever. His righteousness simply outlasts all unrighteousness.
Therefore, let us reverse course and walk in His steps.
We love, because He first loved us.
– 1 John 4:19
