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?
