I am thankful to be able to spread the gospel all over the world. May God continue to bless you and keep you safe under the shadow of His wings. Shared from my heart. Have a blessed Sunday in Jesus Christ, who was and is and is to come. Glory be to God our Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Devotional: Why Love Matters

Why Love Matters

It’s a satisfying feeling to do something you’re good at, and God created each one of us with talents so that we might become who He calls us to be. Some of us are good communicators. Others are good at offering solid wisdom. But all of us have talents that can be used for God’s glory.

In 1 Corinthians 13 though, Paul emphasizes that without love, our God-given gifts cannot be used to their fullest potential. Paul even suggests that we can be the most talented people in the world, but if we don’t have God’s love in our hearts, our words and deeds are essentially meaningless.

Love is considered the greatest of all characteristics because it positively impacts everything—including how we use our gifts as a response to God’s love. When we know God’s love for us, we can have the faith to trust that He is who He says He is, and does what He promises to do.

God created faith, hope, and love so that we would continuously trust in His ability to restore the world to its best. He also created these things because when we use our gifts, and confidently expect they will be used for eternal purposes, He honors our trust and moves powerfully through us.

So take a moment and process where you have tangibly seen God’s love at work in your life. Then, ask God to reveal how you can exemplify love to others this week.
