Give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love

UNFAILING                                                                                    It’s a big word, stretching into every upcoming minute and hour, day and year.  Past the end of life itself into all eternity. Unfailing. It holds firm, never giving way, no matter what weight or stress is placed upon it.

Unfailing love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Such is God’s love, seen in the person of Jesus who, as good shepherd, gave his all for each of us – protecting, saving, forgiving, extending fullness of life.

This Thanksgiving, receive … and give thanks.

(The churches of Abbotsford, giving thanks together!)
