If We Do Not Love…It’s Just Religious Noise!

By Pete Heiniger

Paul gives a big list of impressive actions at the beginning of 1 Corinthians 13. He really stretches the illustration by even drawing supernatural abilities into the mix. You could almost hear him, if he were talking today, say something like, “If you could throw Thor’s hammer…if you could stop bullets in mid-flight….if you could leap tall buildings…but”

All of those illustrations work to set up his main point which is:

No matter what we’re capable of…no matter how talented and skilled we are…no matter how beautiful or successful we are…no matter how many small groups we lead….

If we fail to LOVE….it is ALL just religious noise!
