Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be restrained; where there is knowledge, it will be dismissed. 1Corinthians 13:8.
Love is more important than speaking in tongues.
Love is more important than powerful prophetic gifts.
Love is more important than deep revelations.
Love is more important than giving to the poor and the church.
We have all been deceived to think there are matters more important than walking in love.
There are none.
Nothing else matters.
Love is everything.
Tongues will cease.
Prophetic gifts will cease.
Deep revelations will cease.
Love will outlive them all, because love is the very foundation upon which the kingdom is built. Not prophetic gifts, not power, not revelation.
Ephesians 3 says, we should be rooted and grounded in love.
Not in power.
Not in money.
Not in the prophetic.
Not in revelation knowledge.
Rooted and grounded in love.
The only thing that impresses the Father is our love walk: forgiveness, humility, long suffering, kindness, contentment, mercy, patience, gentleness, self control, peace. Read 1Corinthians 13.
How we show love to the brethren and to those outside the body of Christ. We are defined by love, nothing else.
If you are not walking in love, your Christianity has been a great waste of your life.
