DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
I Corinthians 13:4-13
THEME: THE GREATEST IS LOVE
WORDS OF HOPE:
By far the most “inspiring” message in scripture is: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” This is found in John 3:16. Love is one of the most widely used words, but perhaps it is the least understood. I Corinthians 13:4-8 succinctly outline the attributes and real meaning of what love is. As a Christian, you must emulate the love that God showed toward mankind by allowing His only son to be sacrificed for a “crime” He never committed. When you love one another, the Christian journey can be very fascinating and worth traveling. It is important that you make love your top priority as a child of God. Love one another and never discriminate whatsoever. When you show love, you conquer all.
· Pray for God`s mercy to rest upon you.
· Pray for grace to love one another.
· Pray for understanding of God`s deep love for mankind.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross to show me your great and unconditional love for me. Help me to show such love toward my fellow human beings at all times.
