LOVE AND DEFINITION IN A MAN

                                                                                    LOVE AND DEFINITION IN A MAN

                                                                                           1CORINTHIANS 13 & 14

 

 

PAUL OF COURSE WROTE ONE OF TH GREATET DEFINITIONS OF LOVE THAT COULD EVER PENNED. HE ALSO CAPTURED THE SECRET OF LOVE IN TWO AREAS AND THAT IS IT HAS TO BE LIVED OUT IN A MAN, AND THE SECOND ONE IS THAT LOVE ONLY REACHES IT'S HIGHEST EXPRESSION LIVED IN A MAN FILLED WITH THE LORD AND HIS SPIRIT.

   ONE PORTION OF THESE CHAPTERS  COMPARES THE SOUND OF A LOVELESS PERSON OR A PERSON MINISTERING WITHOUT A LOVE FROM THE LORD TO AN EMPTY WAGON RETURNING HOME. 

I REMEMBER FROM MY TEEN YEARS SOMEONE IN OUR CHURCH WHO WAS USED IN THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT AND EVERY TIME THE GIFTS IN THEM CAME FORTH IT WAS LOUD AND HARSH AS IF THERE WAS SOME ONE BEING SCOLDED. IT WAS REALLY EMPTY OF WHAT YOU WOULD CALL THE LOVE EXPRESSED IN THESE TWO CHAPTERS FROM CORINTHIANS.

TWO WELL KNOWN EXPRESSIONS FROM THIS WORK IN CORINTHIANS ARE 1) LOVE NEVER FAILS, AND 2) LOVE NEVER BEARS UP ANY WRONGS AND BEARS UP THROUGH ALL.  THE WRITER WAS SIMPLY SAYING THAT NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO I AM GOING TO LOVE YOU WITH A LOVE OF GOD. NUMBER TWO WAS THAT NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO YOU ARE ALREADY FORGIVEN SINCE  I HOLD YOU IN GOD'S LOVE IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO SUSAIN ANY WRONG THAT HAPPENS.

IF WE COULD SEE THE WISDOM IN THESE TWO PASSAGES, A GREAT DEAL OF THE MEDICAL COSTS FROM CANCER AND ULCERS WOULD GO AWAY.

FOR THE NEXT STUDY THINK ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS THAT CAN'T FAIL IF THEY ARE ANCHORED IN AGAPE
