1 Corinthians 13- Love Is Forever

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Corinthians 13:11-13

Me and my wife got married on the shore of Jamaica over 18 years ago, one of the greatest days of my life I remember it like yesterday. One thing that I really remember are these words spoken in this Chapter, the Pastor who married us read this entire Chapter as part of our ceremony. And even though I wasn’t yet saved at the time, these words really spoke to me, I still can recall hearing the preaching saying them

This is such a perfect teaching for a marriage, when I was a child, I acted like a child. And that’s what most people don’t understand when you’re getting married, when you join a covenant with your spouse, you are becoming a husband or wife. You are no longer a kid, you no longer just belong to yourself, the two become One flesh and are joined together so let nobody separate. Essentially it’s time to grow up! It’s time to stop acting like a kid and be responsible and trustworthy

Unfortunately the sacredness of marriage has become so watered down in our society, nobody even realizes the significance of the vows you are taking. In fact most people don’t even get married at all today, Marriage is a covenant between a husband and wife with God

As Paul says here “but when I became a man, I put away childish things” Society is crumbling all around us, what is the core of the issue? Men refusing to be Men, in todays society we have men who believe they are women, or if they are men , they spend the majority of their time drinking and looking for entertainment. Where are the real men of God? Where are the Godly Husbands? Where are the Godly Fathers? Where are the Godly Preachers in the Pulpit? They are few and far between, this is why you have many social issues, the world wants God removed from our life, and this is the end result

The world will tell you, nothing lasts forever, however this is not true. As Paul says here , there are three things that remain forever , faith , hope, and love. No matter what is going in the world, Love is forever, Hope is forever, Faith is Forever, and Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever Amen!

    To be sure, Christian men and women need to set the example to the world. We’re to be beacons of light in the dark and increasingly darker world. But we know that these are the End of End Times and these must be in order for the return of our Blessed Hope Jesus Christ. ✝️🕊
