The List

Re:Verse reading–1 Corinthians 13 (day five) I have read “the list” about love in chapter 13 all week. To be honest, there are moments when I am nothing like that list. At times, those qualities and characteristics of love seem completely opposite to my actions and attitudes. The human heart struggles to live as love like that in its own preference and power. I must learn to listen and trust the Spirit. He will teach, convict, and encourage.  When I do, I discover a “loving” God who has demonstrated all the characteristics in the list through the life and words of Jesus and the power and work of the Holy Spirit.  He is patient with me.  He is kind to me.  The is the potential and possibility to live like that because of  “Christ in me”. Glad I have a perfect and faithful example of what the list says love looks and acts like.
