1 Corinthians 13

THE GIFT OF LOVE

“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” 1 Corinthians 13:2, NIV.

Have you ever seen a tailor place a piece of absorbent paper over a spot of grease and press down on it with a hot iron? Why does he do it? The heat melts the grease, and the paper absorbs it. Real love absorbs the spots in the lives of others, making them feel the warmth of our own hearts for them. A careful consideration of the characteristics of love as enumerated in vs 4 – 7, reveals that love is embodiment of God’s nature. Without love, all other spiritual gifts cannot achieve their purpose and revealing Christ Jesus to the unsaved, and nurturing the body of Christ will be almost impossible.
Every believer must exhibit the gift of love to fulfil divine purpose. Apostle Paul states clearly that love is patient, kind, not envious, not boastful, not proud, not easily angered, not self-seeking, keeps no record of wrongs, does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. Love always protects, hopes, trusts and perseveres. Honestly assess yourself in the light of these character traits and determine whether you truly love as much as you should. Strive to love more by stripping yourself of every unwholesome nature and prayerfully imbibe those natures that are consistent with love.

Birthday Blessing: “…He will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs for you” Isaiah 41:18.

RBT Passage: Nehemiah 1-3

“It is not love to let others have what we cannot keep”. – Beecher
