Love Never Fails

Read: Hosea 11

When children fail or do things they aren’t supposed to do, parents may be disappointed, and they may even discipline their kids, but a good parent’s love for their child never changes, waivers or fails. That’s because a mom or dad’s love is not based on conditions. Parents love their kids because they are theirs.


The same is true for us and our relationship with God the Father. He loves us because we’re His. Nothing we could do will ever change that fact.

In Hosea 11, we see how God loves His children, Israel, even though they turn away from Him. While Israel kept failing, God’s love for them never did. God is a loving father who wants good gifts for His children. His love is unconditional. God’s love was not based on what Israel did or didn’t do; it was based on their position as His children. Nothing could ever change God’s love for them.

You may find yourself in a condition where you are wondering how God could still love you, but your position as His child has not changed. His love for you still remains the same.

You may be thinking that God could never love you because of what you have done. God’s love is not based on what you have done but is based on what Jesus did on the cross.

God’s love for you is not based on your condition but is based upon your position as His child. In your life you may fail, but God’s love for you will never fail.

Reflect:

  • Is your past preventing you from experiencing the love God has for you?
  • Is your view of God’s love conditional or positional?
  • Are you struggling to understand how God could love someone like you? We’d love to pray with you and for you. Come to the Care Room on Sunday or email us at hello@newspring.cc.
