Make sure you find a church service or three to stream today. If you are living in the southeastern United States and are currently under the Sahara desert sand storm, today’s a perfect day to spend extra time in the Word.
13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
No matter how familiar or unfamiliar with the Bible you are, most likely you have heard the verse above in your lifetime. There is no simpler, nor no more important truth for you to understand. You can have all the faith in the world in Jesus, the faith to move mountains, but as we saw three days ago, if you do not have love, that faith is a waste. You can have a heart filled with nothing but hope, but without love, your hope will be swayed with the first wave of problems that comes washing in. Love is the key to all of this. I can not say it enough, and we’ll see it brought up throughout the rest of the New Testament. And love is really the difference between the Old and New Testament. The Old Testament was about worship and believing in God. But only David really wrote about the love of God and loving God. Jesus came and established the truth of our connection to God, that we are His beloved children and He is a good, good Father.
