Without Love, Faith and Hope is dead

Verse of the Day

Three things will last forever–faith, hope, and love–and the greatest of these is love. [NLT] 1 Corinthians 13:13

It is true that the value of faith cannot be disputed in that it often motivates us to move forward even when the odds are stacked up against us. More so, it helps us to be hopeful, as having hope when facing impossible situations helps us to see and get to the finishing line. And so in life, to live without faith and hope, makes living rather difficult. However, here the Apostle Paul reminds us the significance of Love over faith and hope. Which begs the question, what is so amazing about love, and why is it greater than Faith and hope, both of which you need to survive challenging/difficult situations? I guess for one, it has to do with the fact that, it was for the sake of LOVE that Our Father in heaven sent His son Jesus into the world, to die on the cross and to act as a ransom for all our indiscretions /sins. And through this wonderful action of His, He showed us that without love, we would have still been in our sin and therefore would not have received redemption. And without that redemption, our faith would have been non-existent. And how can we have hope without faith? Indeed, we are to be pitied, for what kind of life would that have been? But thank #God for #Jesus #Christ. Thank God for our salvation. Thank God for our Faith in Him that builds hope in our lives, and most importantly thank you Lord Jesus for #Love, for without Love, #faith and #hope would not exist! #Devotional #Verseoftheday #WhatILearntFromPaul

Verse of the Day

It was Palm Sunday Yesterday. A day when Christians all over the world celebrate the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem; the week before his death and resurrection. In the simplest of terms, Palm Sunday is an occasion for reflecting on the final week of Jesus’ life. It’s a time for Christians to prepare their hearts for the agony of His Passion and the joy of His Resurrection. Jesus died so that we could LIVE! #HolyWeek #PassionofChrist #ChristCrucifixion #ChristResurrection
