The Love of God has no beginning or end it is Eternal as He is Eternal, it is unlike the Ocean, there is no Height that it cannot reach or Depth that it cannot go, it always Trusts, always Hopes, always Perseveres, keeps no record of wrongs, never gives up and it never fails.
Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable and receives the impossible.

Hebrews 10: 22 -24 Let us draw near with a True heart in full assurance of FAITH, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our FAITH without wavering for He is Faithful that promised. And let us consider one another to provoke unto Love and to good works (KJV)
James 2:26 For as the body without the Spirit is dead, so FAITH without works is dead also.(KJV)
Hope without Love is empty, because it ‘s focus is not on Eternal Truths and we need Faith that comes from Love to have Hope, or it has no foundation and to have Joy with no Love is fleeting and offers no Hope… Hope without God’s Peace which we can only have if we Love God and others, would only make us fearful that what we Hope for will never happen… The greatest of all things is God’s Love!
1 John 3:2-4 Beloved, now are we the sons/daughters of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be but we know that when He shall appear we shall be like Him for we shall see Him as He is. And every man/woman that hath this HOPE in Him, purifieth themselves even as He is pure.(KJV)

And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe according to the working of His mighty Power.(KJV)

1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the Truth is not in Him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the LOVE of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.(KJV)
Mark 12:30-31 And thou shalt LOVE the Lord thy God with all thy Heart, and with all thy Soul, and with all thy Mind, and with all thy Strength: this is the first Commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt LOVE thy Neighbour as thyself. There is none other Commandment greater than these.(KJV)
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abide FAITH , HOPE, LOVE, these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE.(NKJV)
We can’t give up if we really LOVE God in our heart, He won’t let us.
