Love is the greatest force on the planet

From my reading of I Corinthians 11-13 this morning God reminded me that …

* The Body of Christ really, really needs each other. I think when we fight and divide it must break God’s heart.

* Nothing in the Church and all the myriad relationships with their ups and downs, is as great as love. 

* “I love you” is the greatest statement on the planet. 

* Jesus would not have given his life for me, for anyone, if he had not loved me.

* All humans are worthy of love — from the least to the greatest.

* God did not spare his own son because he loved us.

* Love is stronger than death!

“Lord God, help me to love myself and to to love others.  Love covers a multitude of sins.  So Lord I confess that I have sinned against you in thought, word and deed.  I have not loved you with my whole heart.  I have not loved my neighbor as myself.  I am truly sorry and I humbly repent.  For the sake of your son Jesus Christ, have mercy on me and forgive me, that I may delight in your will and walk in your ways to the glory of your name.”
