In our second look at the “Love Chapter” of I Corinthians 13, we explore what it is like to not have this love and how we need to let our hearts long for whatever experience of this love we are missing.
Our main theme in this series is, “to experience and express the agape-love of our Triune God.” It is important to understand this, that God never requires us to express something he has not already given us in Jesus Christ.
This means that, whenever we see that we are unable to express agape-love to others, we turn to our heavenly Father in order to experience agape-love from him.
It is already true that, “God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” This journey through I Corinthians 13 invites us to hunger and thirst for the righteousness of knowing God in his love more than we have ever known him this way before. This message should help.
