1 Corinthians 13:1-13
“Church – Love ≠ Church” (Jeff Moore and Keiler Swartz, preaching)
These well-known verses are often heard in the setting of the beginning of a marriage. They are strong and important thoughts as we consider personal relationships. But what’s more is that Paul’s discussion of love is directed to a Christian community, and is a framework for living together as disciples of Jesus Christ. Without love – deep, abiding love – we can’t be the church. How will we abide faith, hope, and, most importantly, love, as we follow Jesus together?
