MORNINGTIME 3906by Benjamin Munsell on December 20, 2021
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not Charity (Love), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of Prophecy, and Understand all mysteries, and all Knowledge; and though I have all Faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not (Love), I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not (Love), it profiteth me nothing. (Love) suffereth long, and is kind; (Love) envieth not; (Love) vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the Truth; Beareth all things, Believeth all things, Hopeth all things, Endureth all things. (LOVE) NEVER FAILETH: but whether there be Prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be Tongues, they shall cease; whether there be Knowledge, it shall vanish away. 1 Corinthians 13:1-8. Strong's definition of Charity: "Love that is affection or benevolence; specifically (plural) a Love feast: - (feast of) charity ([-ably]) dear love". Unless and until you have Love first and foremost for Christ, AND for all other Believers, AND for all the lost souls heading for Hell, YOU ARE NOTHING. If you think you're a spiritual "Superman" and can do all these things, AND HAVE NOT LOVE, you're just a guy in a funny suit useless to the Lord. Christ doesn't want your money and good deeds, HE WANTS YOUR LOVE. With HIS Love, "I can do all things THROUGH CHRIST which Strengtheneth me". Philippians 4:13. In, with and through Christ and His Love, "I CAN DO ALL THINGS", under His Authority, and THEN I will be a vessel suitable for HIS use. The worldly do Great Deeds without Love, AND IT'S ALL WOOD, HAY AND STUBBLE. It all goes up in smoke, as they go to Hell. Love the Lord, Love your neighbor, Love life and Life Everlasting, AND BE USED OF THE LORD IN WAYS YOU'VE NEVER DREAMED ABOUT, and, Be Blessed.
