1 Corinthians 13:2 MSG
If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.
so today am on that “loving makes you feel good tip”.
so the first part of this verse is talking about revealing the mysteries of God and speaking his word with power. . .
now we all enjoy a good sermon. imagine if all those preacher men spoke all they do without love?? its not like we wont get edified right?? afterall God’s word never goes back to him void. . . but think about this. . we ought to live a life of servitude in Christ’s body. .
let me break it down. we are poets /dancers/singers/etc , who love what we do and minister through it, yes?
but if we dont love the people we are doing it for WE ARE NOTHING, non existent, zero
if our heart’s not in it people will still be edified but not as much(verse one talks about a clanging gong). . .
in our ministry we also get ministered to. . without that chikondi (i.e Love) we feed others but starve ourselves rendering ourselves useless.
a starving person has no energy and sumtimes no will to live.
love is what keeps us going it gives us the zeal to live. think about it. . even some people who arent living in Christ are alive coz they “love life”. thats where their drive comes from they LOVE what they do (albeit we as Christians have to have the love of God at our core but i hope you get what i mean)
we are nothing without love
