If you want to see the highest form of commitment, look to the Cross, and see Jesus Christ. He is the most committed husband and friend that the universe has ever seen, and will ever do so. He could have given up and backed out from what His Father wanted Him to do, but He did not. He could have been discouraged by everything that we will ever do and ever become in this life, but He endured every insult, every wound, and every humiliation just for us. Jesus fulfilled every little detail in God’s plan that will guarantee the beautiful life and freedom that we have now.
So often, we think that He will give up on us after everything we did. However, let us realize, beloved, that He could have done that more than 2000 years ago on the Cross. He could have chosen to not save us in the first place. But no. His love is greater than any mistake or poor decision that we’ll ever make. Our sins and inconsistencies are not enough to disprove the value that we have in His eyes.
The next time you are tempted to think that Jesus gave up on you, I hope you remember this. Jesus is faithful and committed to you. You are loved. You will never be alone, because He is by your side and He won’t leave. Ever.
