| A HEART LIKE JESUS
Why love, you ask? It doesn’t last. I know you are saying to yourself, my mother/father's love didn’t last, they gave me away. Or my friends love didn’t last they abandoned me for others. My husbands love didn’t last, he divorced me. My love didn’t last, I killed my baby, or I gave her away. I haven’t loved nor have others loved me with unfailing Love. No,my friend, we are all guilty of a “failing love” except for One.

That kind of Love is interceding even now for you before His Father. That kind of Love comes to live within us to strengthen us to love more like Him.
