John 1:14 (NLT) — 14 So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

Jesus is the perfect person to have camping with you. He is full of unfailing love and faithfulness or grace and truth as some translations say. Because he was full there was no more room in Jesus for anything other than love and faithfulness. Jesus was the perfect blend on unfailing love and faithfulness. Some people are good at extending love but they are not very faithful as witnessed by the many broken families in our culture.  Some people are faithful but you wouldn’t use love to describe them. As witnessed by the dim view of the Church that outsiders have. This verse assures us that Jesus can always be counted on to express unfailing love and faithfulness. As witnessed by him obeying his Father and going to the cross for us.

Romans 5:8 (NLT) — 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

Hebrews 13:5 (NLT) — 5 Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”

Why memorize scripture? Because it allows us to maintain mental equilibrium; the ability to think clearly in all situations and not fall apart.

Psalm 119:97 (NLT) — 97 Oh, how I love your instructions! I think about them all day long.
