Never Give Up


Don’t give up on yourself.

You are valuable and you are loved,

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

1 Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

On those you love.

They are to valuable to lose.

On those who fail.

They can be restored by God

On God.

He will never fail you.

Jesus doesn’t give up on people.

Peter denied him

Peter cursed

Peter repented

Peter preached

Jesus will never give up on us.

Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Heb 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Does Jesus Care? Hymn

Does Jesus care when my heart is pained Too deeply for mirth and song; As the burdens press, and the cares distress, And the way grows weary and long?

Does Jesus care when my way is dark With a nameless dread and fear? As the daylight fades into deep night shades, Does He care enough to be near?

Does Jesus care when I’ve tried and failed To resist some temptation strong; When for my deep grief I find no relief, Tho my tears flow all the night long?

Does Jesus care when I’ve said good bye To the dearest on earth to me, And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks Is it aught to Him does He see?

O yes, He cares I know He cares His heart is touched with my grief; When the days are weary, the long nights dreary, I know my Saviour cares.
