And there is no better time to sit back in your chair and read 1 Cor. 13. At the end of it I am asking you to do something, so don’t miss it.
1 Corinthians, Chapter 13
“If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2) If I have the gift of prophesy and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3) And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love it profits me nothing. 4) Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5) does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6) does not rejoice in unrighteousness but rejoices with the truth; 7) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8) Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9) For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10) but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11) When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12) For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13) But now faith, hope, love, abide these three but the greatest of these is love.”
Now for you. Go back. Read 1 Cor. 13 one more time and this time, insert the word Christ for the word love. This chapter will come alive for you in a new and beautiful way. Enjoy, be blest and enriched.
