NKJV, 1 Corinthians 13:13 – “And now abideth faith, hope, charity (LOVE), these three; but the greatest of these is charity (LOVE).”
CEV, 1 Corinthians 13:13 – “For now there are faith, Hope, and love. But of these three, the greatest is love.
Love motivates and inspires us. It helps us rise above our personal needs and builds organizations with a higher purpose. When you bring love into the workplace, you create positive and nourishing relationships. Love is a true survival emotion. This makes perfect sense if you think of love as the glue for essential positive attachments.
Faith works through love means that our Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ manifests itself in love. Love for God and love for people. We receive salvation by Faith, but true biblical Faith responds with work or action. This “work” is love and it is the automatic result of our Faith in Christ.
What do you do when you’re facing a particularly stubborn problem? A problem that resists your every effort to solve it.
Put the power of love to work on it! The power of love is the greatest power in the universe. It’s beyond defeat. It never fails (1 Cor. 13:8).
The Bible says God is love. So when you release love into a situation, you have released God into it. Think about that! When you start releasing love into a situation, Jesus becomes responsible for its success.
What is this love I’m talking about?
First Corinthians 13 tells us it’s patient and kind. It’s not jealous or haughty or conceited or rude. It doesn’t insist on its own way. It’s not touchy or resentful and it pays no attention to a suffered wrong.
Love rejoices when right and truth prevail and it bears up under anything and everything that comes. It’s ever ready to believe the best of every person. Its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances and it endures everything without weakening (The Amplified Bible).
The person who refuses to love is missing out on the very best God has to offer.
Don’t you miss out on any of it? Release love every moment into every situation, every prayer and every thought until it totally consumes your life. It will strengthen you and cast out every fear that has robbed you of God’s greater blessings. It will drive the devil out of your affairs and set you free from every torment of darkness.
Put love to work on the stubborn problems in your life. It’s the one solution they’ll never be able to resist.
