STRONG LOVE

1 Corinthians 13:4 “So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”

What a great reminder for those who teach and proclaim God’s Word. We might sound good and have a great message, but if we are not speaking this truth in love then we haven’t gained anything (1 Cor. 13:3). You can still bold and proclaim truth with great love. The people of God are God’s children, we should not beat them down. Be honest with them but do it in love. Just because you show love doesn’t mean you are weak. Look at 1 Cor. 16:13 “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be STRONG. Let all that you do be done in LOVE.”

Speak the truth. Speak in Love.
