Sunday Stillness – 1 Corinthians 13:8

Sunday Stillness – 1 Corinthians 13:8

1-Cor.-13-8

In all things we need love. That is why love never fails – it never gives up. Jesus taught us that.

However, in this world we get side-tracked into thinking that we can control things; that people must do things our way.

Instead God calls us to do things His way and to delight in it.

I delight to do Thy will, O my God (Psalm 40:8, KJV).

Do you or I foster the “meek and quiet spirit” or a “spirit of self-satisfaction”? (from Oswald Chambers).

Let’s check this week:

      • our mannerisms
      • our attitude
      • our words
      • little things we do for others
      • prayer
      • kindnesses

Are we doing these things? Remember what the Lord requires of us:

To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8, NIV).

Here is a worship song that will always remind you that LOVE NEVER FAILS.

It is called One Thing Remains by Bethel Church

We never have to be afraid – one thing remains

Your love never fails, it never gives up.

Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.

I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.

    Thank you for this post… in this “love month” I am doing my best to focus on LOVE…. not just loving others….but digging into God’s word on HIS LOVE FOR ME. My friend at http://www.raisingfuturesthers.com is doing a month of devotions on The Relentless, Transforming, Redeeming Love of God. Follow along if you get the chance.

      Nina,
      Thanks so much. As you can see it has taken me until Wednesday to respond to comments. But I know I do what is required of me – love never fails.
      Blessings to you too,
      Janis
