Making 1 Corinthians 13 Personal

 

We’re familiar with Paul’s prescription for the indispensable element of love in our walk with Christ:

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.   And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.   If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.   (1 Corinthians 13:1-3)

Many times we’ve heard or read the follow-up paragraph on how Christ-like love acts:

 

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.   It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.   Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.   (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

 

Do you want to take your understanding and application of this love to the next level in a way that is profoundly convicting?

 

 Replace the word love in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 with your name.
