The Greatest Thing in the World - 02
1 Cor. 13:13 (ESV) "So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
Why is love the greatest? Because love is the ultimate thing humanity desires and needs. Love is the essence of God's kingdom. Faith is a gift God has given us to believe in love, to reach for love, and to act in love. Hope is knowing love is possible and available for all no matter what this world brings. God has given us his Spirit who empowers us to love. Sharing real love with another person is one of the simplest things in the world to do. It is also one of the hardest things to do because it costs us all of self in that moment. The interaction must be fully selfless and genuine. When we yield to such creative moments we are truly being led by the Holy Spirit.
