I’m Elder Dan for educational podcast. On behalf of Yahshua the Messiah ministry, our main website, welcome to this edition of our podcast.

Yes, love is a word that is often used but seldom understood, which is why I have decided to take a closer look at this beautiful passage.

What does it mean by love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, never ends? At first glance, it may seem like just a few simple words, but as we reflect on them, we realize that they hold the key to unlocking the true essence of love.

So, let’s break it down and understand what each phrase truly means.

First phrase: Love always protects. This phrase is a testament to the selflessness that is required to truly love someone. It’s about their safety, their happiness, and their well-being. Protecting someone doesn’t just mean physical protection but also emotional nurture and guidance, ensuring that they feel loved and valued, that their dreams and aspirations are supported, and that their personality and identity are celebrated.

Second phrase: Love always trusts. Trust is a fundamental component of any healthy relationship, but it can be difficult to maintain. Insecurity and mistrust can cause relationships to buckle under the weight of doubts and fears. Trust is about being confident in one another, in each other’s abilities, intentions, and beliefs. It is about believing the best in each other, even when things seem tough. And it is about being faithful to each other, even when the going gets tough.

Third phrase: Love always hopes: This may be the most underestimated aspect of love, but hope is truly the glue that can hold a relationship together through the hardest times. Hope is about seeing the potential in each other, and believing that together you can achieve great things. It is about being optimistic when things look bleak, and never giving up hope. When we have hope, we are open to new possibilities and can overcome challenges that may have seemed impossible.

Fourth phrase: Love always perseveres. Love requires tenacity and determination to keep going even when things are hard. Life can be unpredictable, but persevering through ups and downs is the only way to truly grow together. Perseverance means being committed to achieving your goals together, even when the road is long and rocky. It means supporting one another through thick and thin, and never giving up on the bond that you share.

Fifth phrase: Love never ends. There is something truly remarkable about love that never ends. It is a love that endures through hardship, that perseveres when things get tough, and that remains hopeful even in the darkest of times. When we base our relationships on these four pillars of love, we build bonds that are unbreakable and enduring.

However, it’s important to note that achieving this kind of love is not an easy task. It requires consistent effort, patience, and a willingness to forgive and grow together through any challenges. We must be willing to put in the work to cultivate a love that never ends.

Regardless of our relationship status or experience, we can choose to embody these characteristics of love in all aspects of our lives. When we love others with trust, hope, perseverance, and faithfulness, we not only enrich our own lives, but we also make the world a better and more loving place.

In a world that often seems so divided and filled with hate, we need the kind of love that never ends more than ever. Let us strive to be agents of this kind of love in our homes, communities, and the world at large. For when love never ends, anything is possible.

Love that never ends is more than just a passing feeling or an emotion that fades over time. It is a way of being, a way of living, and a way of loving that transcends the fleeting nature of human emotions.

May we all strive to be vessels of love, spreading its warmth and goodness wherever we are. I hope this podcast will help and serve as an inspiration for you.

And here’s the real definition of love: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. (1 Corinthians 13:4-6)

When we love in this way, we inspire others to love, and we bring light and hope to the world. May we all strive to be vessels of love, spreading its warmth and goodness wherever we are. I hope this podcast will help and inspire all of you about the true meaning and real definition of love.

In conclusion, the love mentioned in 1 Corinthians 13:7-8 is powerful, transformative, and unbreakable. By embodying love in our relationships, we can create deep connections that are fulfilling, joyful and enduring.

Before I go, let me pray this prayer with you: May Yahweh bless you and keep you; may Yahweh make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; may Yahweh lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. I humbly pray these things to Almighty Yahweh, our Father in heaven, through Savior Yahshua, our Master and King. Halleluyah! Amen.
