Put your words to work by walking in LOVE!
Charity is LOVE
1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (LOVE), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
Brothers do you see that you can have the gift of prophecy and understand all of the mysteries of God, and have His knowledge. But, if you do not have LOVE then you are nothing.
There is nothing greater than LOVE. The love that was Jesus must live inside of you. When His LOVE lives inside you then will you walk through this life speaking words of love, and living in LOVE as others will see that LOVE in you.
3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
You will not profiteth any blessing from God even though you would give all that you own to feed the poor of this world. If you do not have LOVE.
Brothers, LOVE must live inside you, and what lives inside you will come out. Be it good or evil.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
Brothers, LOVE will suffer wrong, LOVE is kind. LOVE will not envy what others have, and LOVE is not puffed up by thinking himself to be better than others.
LOVE will never behave unseemly. LOVE is not easily provoked to anger or wrath. LOVE does not think evil thoughts.
LOVE rejoices in the truth, and not in iniquity. LOVE will bear all things. LOVE believes all things, and hopes for all things. LOVE will endure all things.
LOVE never fails!
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
LOVE has come to this world in the form of Jesus our Lord and Savor. It is his LOVE which sustains us in this live. His LOVE is come to live inside each of us who know Jesus. Our bodies have been crucified with Jesus, and His LOVE has come to live inside us.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
When we were children we acted as other children acted. We grew into teenagers, and young adults. We were lost and acted as the lost world acts. But, when we accepted Jesus in our lives then His LOVE came to live in each of us.
We have put away those things which were evil and worldly.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Brothers, when Jesus appears then we will stand face to face before Him, we shall know everything just as He knows everything.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Now we abide in our faith, and now we abide in our hope of his very soon appearing.
Faith, Hope, and Love are ours now, but the greatest of these is LOVE!!!!
God bless you my brothers. Walk in LOVE now, and Speak LOVE to all whom you meet in this life.
