1 Corinthians 13: The Love [God?] Chapter

While reading this chapter I couldn’t help but think of the verse in 1 John that confidently states that “God is love” (1 John 4:16)…and it got me thinking…What if I were to replace every instance of the word Love with “God” in this all too famous chapter of the Bible…

I believe I have stumbled on something amazing…I have stumbled upon a beautiful description of our Lord!!!

This chapter IS God…It divulges a little more of His character and our need for Him in every verse! Without Him (i.e, without Love) our prophesy means nothing, our tongues are mere noise, and our faith rendered ineffective.  Our good deeds come to nothing or even worse…filthy rags (Is 64: 6). 

He is kind and patient.  Forever loving us even in our sin.  He patiently awaits the right time to come because He desires every man to hear of their chance for salvation and eternal life in paradise…with Him

He is never jealous at all…Well  He is jealous for me, desiring exclusivity in my heart but He is no where near envious…For what do I have that He could envy???   He is God.  The Creator of this universe.  The God Most High, Healer, Deliverer, Miracle worker, Hope…. The One who displays His power among the people!

AND

“Love (God) NEVER fails.” (1 Cor 13:8) 

You NEVER fail, my God, my Love!  Everything will eventually fall and fade but You!!… You will never go away. And when Christ comes again, when the perfect comes we will be made complete.  Your perfect love manifested in Christ and His sacrifice makes the partial whole.  

Hallelujah
