The Better Way
1 Corinthians 12:31-13:3 - Some of the most beautiful, profound, and inspired words in the New Testament are found in 1 Corinthians chapter 13. At the same time, these are among one of the most misunderstood passages as well. You see, these words about love were not written to an individual or a couple – they were written to the church, to all of us together. For it is in and through the church that God’s perfect, redeeming love for His people is displayed to the world. And there’s nothing better than that.
What the world needs now? Love. Yet these days, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of love going around. What can we do about it? Where is the love the world needs going to come from? It will come from us; the church. From people whose lives are committed to bringing love and hope to the world through the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Because not only is there a better way, we’ve been called to the most excellent way.
