 Let us meditate on these few Scripture every morning


Even if I dole out all that I have [to the poor in providing] food, and if I surrender my body to be burned or [c] in order that I may glory, but have not love (God's love in me), I gain nothing.

Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.

Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].

Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. As for prophecy (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), it will be fulfilled and pass away; as for tongues, they will be destroyed and cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away [it will lose its value and be superseded by truth].

For our knowledge is fragmentary (incomplete and imperfect), and our prophecy (our teaching) is fragmentary (incomplete and imperfect).

But when the complete and perfect (total) comes, the incomplete and imperfect will vanish away (become antiquated, void, and superseded).

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become a man, I am done with childish ways and have put them aside.

And so faith, hope, love abide

FAITH--conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things;

HOPE--joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation;

LOVE--true affection for God and man, growing out of God's love for and in us], these three; but

THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE.

1 Cor. 13 & 14:1 PURSUE LOVE

 Re:

What is the greatest act of Love. God putting His Son in every believer. Making Him in us, wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption for us and as us. This act of Love is our only Hope of Glory. What a Hope, Love Himself in us.

1 Cor 1:30 and Col 1: 27-28

In Christ: Phillip
