The Greatest Virtue

Good Wednesday morning to you! Paul, in 1 Corinthians 13, said that three things remain: faith, hope and love. He wrote that the greatest is love. In Colossians 3, he said that love holds all of the virtues of a Christian together. He said:

And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. – Colossians 3:14 (NIV)

Friends, if we are not loving God by loving others, we are doing this Christian thing wrong. We have to learn to be loving above everything else. Our kindness and compassion, humility and forgiveness have to come from a heart filled with love – for God and for other people. We cannot possibly hope to follow Jesus without love because Jesus is love. If we’re not willing to show love to people in Jesus’ name, we’ll never be able to share the good news of the Gospel with them. It all starts with love.
