Love always perseveres.
“When all else fails (or seems to), love never gives up. It hangs on to the end. Loving parents never give up on their children, never stop loving them, never stop praying for them, no matter how rebellious and wayward they may “be. God is eternal, and since agape has its source in Him, it too is eternal. Therefore, by nature and definition, agape always perseveres. Agape bears up under persecution, slander, hardship, abuse, false accusations, ingratitude—anything. The persevering quality of agape is what Jesus displayed when He prayed from the Cross for His enemies and executioners: “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Lk. 23:34.)
Love never fails. This statement sums up all that has gone before. The word fails here is used in the sense of something giving way, falling off, or ceasing to exist. Love is eternal. Prophecies, tongues, and knowledge will someday pass away but agape will never fail. This world we live in, as well as the entire physical universe, will eventually disappear, but agape will never fail. Agape is a little bit of Heaven on earth right now, and it will remain to characterize life for all of God’s people in the new Heaven and new earth that are to come. “Though all else may pass away, love will remain. Agape never fails.
