Love Is the Greatest
13 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it;[a] but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Welcome to a recording of our church service from May 2, 2021. Today we’ll hear about what our community has done, as well as what we can do to help our world. We’ll hear announcements, worship in song, and engage with Pastor Ben’s sermon. Pastor Ben wraps up the “One Church, One Call” series by talking about the “Best Way to Live.” Looking at 1 Corinthians 13:1-7, Ben talks about how we as the Church are invited to take one step towards loving others.
