Soon it will be Valentine’s Day.
The month of love.
And we’ll see Valentine’s Day cards with excerpts of 1 Corinthians 13 – the chapter of love.
But is this what Paul was talking about?
Actually, Paul was writing to the church in Corinth and the Greek word he used for love was agapeo.
Agapeo is a kind of love that is only capable of being expressed when we allow God to love through us.
We can know that by looking at how 1 Corinthians 13 describes this kind of love – trying to put this kind of love into action on a daily basis is impossible without God’s power and grace in and flowing through us.
It is important to know that 1 Corinthians 13 isn’t talking just to married people, and it really isn’t talking about romantic love at all.
1 Corinthians 13 addresses the church and the kind of relationship we should have as brothers and sisters in the church.
Do you struggle to understand the love and grace of God? Does the concept of “church family” and the body of Christ being an extension of our family befuddle you at times?
The church arguments
It’s almost as if the church family is as dysfunctional as any other family.
And it is.
Because the church family is made up of imperfect people who are called to reflect the perfect image of Christ!
When we begin to comprehend the depth of God’s love and grace toward us as fallen people, we will view the family of God through a clearer lens.
Suddenly we no longer measure others by our intentions but we measure ourselves by God’s perfection.
Realizing our own propensity to failure, we stop pointing the finger and start extending a hand of grace!
3 years ago I did an in-depth study 0f 1 Corinthians 13, but not from the perspective of romantic or familial love. This time I examined the chapter within the context of our relationship with the body of Christ.
And it transformed my entire life!
Suddenly, the concept of agape love and my role in the body of Christ became clear. But not only that.
14 Days of Agape is an online, video-based Bible study and workbook that will not only challenge you to look at the Love Chapter from a whole new perspective, it gives you questions that will probe your heart to it’s very depths.
