Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

November 6 - Morning

"“If 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 do not have love,
I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and
give over my body to hardship that I may boast,
but do not have love, I gain nothing.”

- First Corinthians 13:2-3

Love Never Fails    

It is important to recognize that Paul’s famous chapter on love was not originally placed in the minister’s “Handbook for Wedding Services” or in the Christian’s book of “Great Poems from Scripture.” First Corinthians chapter 13 is part of Paul’s instructions on spiritual gifts. In chapter 12 Paul says that manifestations of the Holy Spirit come through every believer:

            “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given.” - First Corinthians 12:7

Since, the Holy Spirit is God and the character of God is love (1 John 4:8), then any manifestation of the Holy Spirit is a manifestation of the love of God for the common good of his church. God’s intention is that we manifest his gifts to the church with the same character as God, which is love.

Paul’s instructions for manifesting the gifts describes a personal manifestation of the Holy Spirit’s gift like this:

Love is patient,
Love is kind.
Love does not envy,
Love does not boast,
Love is not proud.
Love does not dishonor others,
Love is not self-seeking,
Love is not easily angered,
Love keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
Love rejoices with the truth.
Love always protects,
Love always trusts,
Love always hopes,
Love always perseveres.
– First  Corinthians 13:4-7

If the Holy Spirit is manifesting in our churches and if we are serving for the common good in love the church will not fail, as Paul adds in the next verse:

“Love never fails.” – First Corinthians 13:8

  Christian Quote from Church History

"Talking to men for God
is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still."
- E.M. Bounds



Something to Ponder??
Each day more than
200 million Christians in over 60 nations face persecution, 60% of these are children.
This results in 150,000 to 165,000 Christians being martyred each year.
Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Shamayim (Hb) - Heavens (Eng) - the Hebrew word shamayim is used to express "heavens,"
"sky" and refers to the visible heavens or the abode of the stars. This noun is used 411 times
in the Hebrew Bible. The -im ending on shamayim makes the word plural in order to carry the meaning of "spatial expansion" which matches the description of the mordern view of outer space.
  The Church of Saint Peter in the Vatican marks the traditional burial place of Peter. Around 190 AD Gaius, the presbyter in Rome, placed a monument commemorating Peter's burial at this location in the Vatican. Excavation under Saint Peter's Church revealed a church built by Constantine which was over a two story niche shrine from 150 AD which was itself built over a first century tomb believed to be Peter's. When it was excavated in the 1940's no bones were reported being found in this first century tomb. Some people believe bones were found, but the Vatican declined to
confirm the claim.
Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Not only will I desire to use my spiritual gift, but I will also desire to do so in the power of love.   "A man who commits
adultery lacks judgment; whoever does so
destroys himself."
Proverbs 6:32
