“Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-5
These words speak as loudly today as they did to the church at Corinth. The fallen nature of man runs counter to the love of God. It is only when we receive the love of God through the shed blood of Jesus that we can even begin to comprehend love.
God’s love is transforming and pure. It is the kind of love that strips itself of its own rights, bends low and washes the feet of those who are to be served. This love, in honor, prefers others before self.
It is patient in all circumstances and doesn’t take offence when slighted either intentionally or unintentionally. Oh, that this kind of love would transform out hearts today!
Let us, the church, demonstrate this kind of love at large.
Love out loud!
Speak loving words followed up with acts of kindness. Let the God kind of love pour out into all our relationships so that the world may know the love of God.
LORD, let Your love be our heart’s song today for Your glory in Christ Jesus, Your love letter sent to us. Amen!
