Without Love - I Am Nothing

1 Corinthians 13:2 “If I have the gift of prophesy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have faith to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. NIV

The Message says: “If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, ‘Jump,’ and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.”

This is sobering, Lord. If I speak your Word with power, – but I speak your Truth without love, I am nothing? I am useless? Even if I understand all mysteries and all knowledge – even if I know and understand more than Einstein knew or more than a top theologian knows – I am of no use without love. Even with faith—strong, powerful and amazing faith that moves mountains of unbelief – this is useless, without LOVE. You are LOVE with capital letters.

It’s clear—I am nothing without YOU! Help me live this today.

Blessings, Dottie
