Central Emphasis: A believer who is learning to speak the truth in love is growing up in christ

“Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.” (vv.8-10)

  • Permanent (vv.8-10)
    “When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood.” (vv. 11-12)
    • God’s Love Never Changes
    • God’s Love Never Gives Up
  • Practical (vv.11-12)
    “So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (v.13)  “Pursue love” (14:1a)
    • Growing Up Physically
    • Growing Up Spiritually
  • Paramount (v.13)
    • God Purposefully Planned It 
    • God’s People, Pursue It

Conclusion: THE LOVING WAY of God is PERMANENT and it is PRACTICAL to apply in our changing society for it is PARAMOUNT to all we do.

Vision: To see equipped members fulfilling the Great Commission.
