When time is taken to read from the Word of God, we discover another treasure of truth. Regardless of how many times we read a verse of scripture, the Holy Spirit always reveals something new because the Bible is alive and accomplishes its intended purpose from the heart of God in our lives.
The 13th chapter of 1 Corinthians has been preached, read, quoted, and sung, but there are deep reservoirs of wealth still buried deep within these verses awaiting discovery. The Holy Spirit challenges us to come and feast at His banqueting table of truth as He reveals things never before seen in this chapter.
Approaching this chapter with an inquisitive heart, one that is famished for more truth will produce an overwhelming download of revelation. The Holy Spirit waits for opportunities to reveal new, fresh manna from the living Word of God.
Prepare your hearts before reading by surrendering yourself to the Holy Spirit and asking Him to show you the new He has for you today. He will shower you with a bouquet of His blessings!
1 Corinthians 13
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love,
I have become sounding brass or a clanging 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, but have not love, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,
but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues,
they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke 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 in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part,
but then I shall know just as I also am known.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
