Love is the Great Transformer

These three things remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. — 1 Corinthians 13:13

Paul wrote to his fellow Christians in Corinth, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9). There is no one in this world who can be in love with God and remain the same. Someone sent me a card that said,

LOVE is the Great Transformer…LOVE transforms:

Ambition into aspiration,

Greed into gratitude,

Selfishness into service,

Getting into giving,

Demands into dedication,

Loneliness into happiness.

Love transforms you into becoming a person with more of the qualities of Jesus Christ. Dedicate your life to love. Don’t let our culture cheapen the meaning and transformation that takes place with agape love, God’s highest form of love. When you seek the higher level of love you can rest assured that your life will never be the same.

GOING DEEPER:
1. According to 1 Corinthians 13:13 when all is said and done, what three things remain?

2. Why do you think love is described as the greatest? What area of your life could use some transformation through love? How has the love of God shaped your life in a more positive direction?
