If I have not love…

I was reflecting on 1 Corinthians 13: 1-3: “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, BUT do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 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 do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, BUT do not have love, I gain nothing.”

The passage here contains one of the most important biblical truths: we can have prophetic revelations but if we do not know how to deliver this in LOVE, we are only NOISE! We can have amazing faith, but without love, we are NOTHING! We may be generous with all our possessions but without love, all that service means nothing.

God wants us to use our gifting to minister to those around us with love (=with patience and kindness, rejoicing in the truth/ without boasting, pride, envy, self-seeking attitude, being vengeful, being easily angered/ ALWAYS being hopeful, trusting, persevering and protecting).

Lord I ask for You to flood our hearts with Your love so we may edify others with our gifting with Christ-like love for Your Glory. In Jesus’ Name, amen. ​

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?

    each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me
    an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the
    way!

    I do enjoy the way you have presented this specific difficulty and it does indeed provide me personally some fodder for thought. Nonetheless, because of just what I have experienced, I just wish as other responses pile on that individuals continue to be on point and don’t embark upon a soap box regarding the news of the day. All the same, thank you for this fantastic piece and even though I can not necessarily go along with it in totality, I value the viewpoint.
