What's Love Got to Do with It? The Greatest of These
Pastor Jim Balzano, February 25, 2018
The Apostle Paul penned the words to I Corinthians 13 to describe what love is, what it does and what it doesn’t do. The end of it famously reads: “and these three remain: faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love.” Jesus said the greatest commandment was to love God. He said the second greatest commandment was to love your neighbor as yourself. That pretty much sums it up…love is the greatest of these. This message charges us, as believers, to not just love as I Corinthians suggests, but rather, become love. It’s not based upon a feeling; it’s based upon a decision to self deny in order to love others.
