New Testament: 1 Corinthians 12:27-13:13
Summary: One Body with Many Members, The Way of Love
We read a very famous chapter in the Bible today, 1 Corinthians 13. Now this so called hymn to love was Paul’s prescription for solving the sickness in the church body, in Corinth, the believers had spiritual gifts, but they lacked spiritual graces and needed to be reminded why love is so important in the Christian life. Love puts quality into service.
When you have love, your words and actions amount to something and they actually help other people. Love also puts maturity into character. Now, the Corinthians were impatient with each other, suing each other tolerating sin in the church, and creating problems because they did not have love. You see, whatever qualities you may have, they are nothing without love. That’s why Christ says, apart from me, the God who is love, you can do nothing.
See, love puts eternity into life. Love lasts, and what love does will last. Love is the greatest and does the greatest because God is love.
