God is Love
Daily Bible Reading – Job 39, 40; 1 Corinthians 13, 14
Today’s Key Passage – 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
Most of us know today’s key passage quite well. It is often read at weddings as it describes all of the best qualities of a perfect love. I also believe this passage describes all of the best qualities of our perfect God. 1 John 4: 7-11 says, “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” From this passage, we learn that God is love.
Since God is love, when we read the passage from 1 Corinthians 13, we can also read it this way – “God is patient, God is kind. God does not envy, He does not boast, He is not proud. He does not dishonor others, He is not self-seeking, He is not easily angered, He keeps no record of wrongs. God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. God always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. God never fails.” Great freedom comes from understanding the true heart of God. Praise Him today for His great love for us. Be blessed knowing that God’s perfect love for you will never fail.
