When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 1 Corinthians 13:11
Before we understood God and accepted Jesus in our hearts, we viewed the world very differently. Things like money and prestige seemed very important, but when your eyes are opened to Gods plan, you realize the things of this world are temporary and pointless.
Becoming a Christian is like going thru childhood, at first you may not understand Gods word and still do reckless things, but as you grow stronger and wiser, Gods word begins to speak to you and your ways are guided by The Holy Spirit
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 1 Corinthians 13:12
Our lives and how we live them out matter, one day you will stand face to face with Jesus and you will account for your life. Do you truly serve it the best you could or did you squander your time on self-indulgence?
Even though life can be a daily struggle we need to stay prepared for that day. To stay strong in The Lord and to live like Jesus. The greatest gift of all is the giving of yourself
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
The gifts giving to us by God are Faith, Hope, and Love. Doesn’t matter how much money or fame you have obtained, if you don’t have these, you have nothing. Through Jesus Christ we have Faith, Hope, and Love because he’s defeated all enemies including death.
Through Christ we can have the Peace of God because of our Faith, Hope, and Love delivered to us from the crucifixion to the resurrection. There is no greater power in the universe than the power in the name of Jesus Amen
