1 Cor 13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

If we have not love, we gain nothing. This pretty much confirms it (if it wasn't confirmed already)...

Love is the most important thing!

AMEN, legoman!!

Love is more important than faith, and in fact, Love is what gives faith life! That means that our Love (God's Love in us) is what causes us to believe, and it is what will win the whole world to Christ in the end-- not by nice speeches and charismatic wit, but by God's presence directly speaking to the heart of each man. No one will need to go listen to a preacher anymore, when they learn to hear God teaching them HIMSELF WITHIN their hearts!

Many blessings to you!
Brian

God is love. Jesus taught love, and by extension Jesus is love.
If we love one another, we know God. If we don't love we don't know God.

Love is what its all about: it is the reason why we are here. It is the point of life, it is the point of creation.

Love never fails.
Love is the most powerful force in the universe because God is love.

Can I get an amen?
That isn't what saves us, so no. It isn't an end-all.

Amen.... the word of God states what saves !!
Acts 16:30-32
30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.


Mark 16:15-17
15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned

Acts 4:12
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Matthew 10:21-23
21 “Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.
22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.

Acts 2:39-41
39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.”
41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.

Yet, of course there are those who will continue to deny and lie about the truth of God !!

Am so thankful, Vizo..... that God has revealed through the power of His word, His word of TRUTH, that through Christ Jesus is salvation, amen !

Let us praise and rejoice that our God is faithful in all that He promises to those who believe !!
