1 Corinthians 13:1-13


    

   Febuary 12, 2019

  

      The true meaning of love that sets the foundation for those who live in Christ, that we as His children should carry out this mandate that the world can see the light of His reflection through us.


    1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (nlt)

  

      If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If  I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I posses to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

         Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast. It is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

          Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

          Love never fails. But where there are prophecies  they will cease: where there are tongues, they will be stilled: where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man  I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror: then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part: then I shall know fully even as I am fully known.

        And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
