This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

The Scriptures —Study 10 — 1 Corinthians 13
Study 10 From The Book of 1 Corinthians Is: 1
The Apostle has urged the believers at Corinth
to be zealous to possess the more excellent of the gifts (12:31), but before
going on to explain what he means by this (chapter 14), he pauses to point out
that spiritual gifts are of profit only when exercised in love.
1.Verses 1-3. Why is love so
all-important? In what ways does Paul show further in verses 8-13 that love is
greater than all other gifts? How may it find expression in my life? Cf. 1 Jn.
4:7, 12; Gal. 5:22, 23.
2.In verses 4-7 there are fifteen
ways of describing love. Write them in a column and then try to put opposite
each a single word summarizing it, and, if possible, an incident in Jesus’s
life illustrating it. Then ask yourself: is this found in me?
