LOVE

22 Mar

Is the greatest gift of all.

You may have everything but if you don’t have love you have nothing. You are “a resounding gong ar a clanging cymbal”. Ouch!

1st Corinthians 13

Love is patient, kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, not rude or self seeking.

It is not easily angered and keeps no records of wrongs.

It does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth.

It always protects, always trusts (that’s a hard one), always hopes and always perserveres.

What struck my attention is “Love never fails”. Really. Love is the answer to everything. Wow! And we know the Bible does not lie, I mean we say ‘Bible truth” for emphasis.

1st John 4:7-21 talks of how great the love of God is. How great is Jesus love that He laid down his life for us!

It goes on to say that one who has no love remains in death (that powerful).

John goes on to say that we have no love if we have plenty and don’t share with those who have none (feeling guilty already).

And how do we draw people to Christ……..

NOT WITHOUT LOVE

    I love this verse because when everyone goes around searching for the meaning of love, this defines it for me so gently.
