πŸ‘‘ Faith, Hope And Love…But The Greatest… πŸ’ž

β€œAnd now abideth faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest of these is love” (I Cor. 13:13).

St. Paul had been discussing, in I Cor. 13, some of the miraculous signs that were to vanish away as God’s revelation became complete. But faith, hope and love, he declared, would abide as a triune evidence of true Christianity.

These three are all we need in the present β€œdispensation of the grace of God.” Any church where faith, hope and love are found in abundant measure is a β€œfull” church. It may have but a few members, but what greater blessing could it wish for than faith, hope and love in its fellowship?

Faith, hope and love are a trinity often referred to in St. Paul’s epistles. Each is of basic importance in its way, and none can exist without the other two.

Faith is of primary importance. β€œWithout faith it is impossible to please [God]” (Heb 11:6), and how can there be hope and love without faith?

Hope holds the central place among the three. Hope in the Bible is more than a wish; it is the opposite of despair, an eager anticipation of blessings to come. Hope is the Christian’s experience, his living with eternity’s glory in view.

Love is the crowning virtue of the three; it is the fruit of faith and hope, and is greatest in the sense that it is β€œthe bond of perfectness.” Moreover, love is eternal. Some day, for every true believer, β€œfaith will vanish into sight; hope be emptied in delight” and love will reign supreme.

May God help us, in our fellowship with each other, to evidence a full measure of faith, hope and love. source
