Series: “What’s Love Got to do With It?”
Today: “The Naz Vision Clarified”
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12:31-13:3 But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way. 1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
