Bible Passage: 1 Corinthians 13:8-13

Part 11 of Love: The Greatest of God’s Graces – 1 Corinthians 13 is often seen a beautiful poem expressing the virtues of love, but it is frequently forgotten that this chapter is embedded in a letter to a Christian community that had lost its way. The values of the Corinthians had become distorted, they had confused means with ends, and they needed to be redirected to what really mattered. The Apostle is correcting them with the message of the gospel—the gospel that displays the God who is love.
