Vs. 13, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” Ahhh yes…the love chapter! Keep in mind, we must remember context when it comes to this chapter. In light of the spiritual gifts, Paul emphasizes the fruits of the Spirit are far more powerful than the spiritual gifts. Whenever the church strives for miraculous experiences rather than Christian holiness and character, there will almost always be division, confusion, and dissension.
Regarding application…LOVE. Paul pretty much steals thet thunder from everyone when it comes to explaining love. There is not much more to say when we ponder the word “love”. There are many things in this world we must keep in mind. Christian charater, Christian growth, school, college, career, family, children, elderly parents, grandchildren…yet none of these will mean nothing if we do not have love! Don’t ever waste a day without sharing love in some form. It is the greatest gift we have been given and the greatest gift we can give is the love of Christ!
