UNCONDITIONAL LOVE



1 Corinthians 13

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Cathy, the Lord is using you mightily.. thank you for your blog. Waking up to the truth after being deceived in my Christian walk for so long is an extremely tearful repentant journey. I love your scripture posts next to beautiful, uplifting photos. It reminds me to hope and endure all things... Jesus loves me this I know...

Bless your heart, Denise - thank you for your kind and very encouraging words.

Like peeling an endless onion, the painful discoveries often bring me to tears.

Only by the grace of God and through the power of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, do I press on.

Since very few will dialog with me on these subjects, I tell of my discoveries via this blog.

May the Lord bless you, keep you, make His face to shine upon you, be gracious to you, and give you peace, Denise.

Trusting in Christ alone,

Cathy
