1 Corinthians 13:13

1 Corinthians 13:13 – And now these three remain: faith, hope, and Love. But the greatest of these is Love. Love is the fulfillment of all things. When God created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them, it was because of Love. Then God created man and woman and He Loved them. Love was in the beginning and Love will be there in the end because God is Love. Now when man was first created he would walk hand in hand with God. There was no sin, no pain, no hurt; all was perfect. Faith and hope had not yet entered the world, because there was nothing better than the life that man already had. After man turned from God sin entered the world. With sin came all the bad things and the broken lives we have today. Now we have a need for hope and faith. See, Love is still here, but we cannot walk hand in hand with God in our fallen state, so we receive His Love through faith. Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we cannot see. When man fell, sin became a part of us, but God gave us something to hope for. He says that one day we will be made perfect once again and enter back into true fellowship with Him. We see this promise through Christ and all that He did for us. When we look at Christ we look through eyes of faith, with eager anticipation of the day when we will be made perfect in Him. For now, though, we have hope in Jesus and receive the promises of God through faith. Once that day comes hope and faith will no longer be needed and Love is all that will remain. God’s Love for you and your Love for Him, as life will be perfect once again.
