How to define Christianity in one word? Love!
In the Bible Love is insisted upon by Jesus and the New Testament writers more than any other virtue. More than generosity, patience, trust, obedience, more than all these things we are to love.
Doesn’t matter how many spiritual gifts I have, if I can prophecy, if I have amazing knowledge and insight or rock solid faith that can move mountains, without love it is not worth any.
No matter how much love you have in your heart right now, I want you to be desperate for more much more! I want you to hunger, thirst, crave for more and more love in your life and the reason is because in God’s kingdom nothing in your heart is more important than love.
