No matter what you say, what you believe, and what you do, you’re nothing without love.
" Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away" 1 Corinthians 13:8. Yes all these will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever, "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity" 1 Corinthians 13:13.
If you didn’t love others, with all that you do, you would only be making noise.
"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things" 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. With this we know we love.
Paul says, "But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all" 1 Corinthians 12:7. It’s especially that you may prophesy, "not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved" 1 Corinthians 10:33. With spiritual gifts, seek that the church may receive edification, exhortation and comfort from you, and "even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel" 1 Corinthians 14:12. All Paul is saying is as in all the churches of the saints seek to teach others, encourage believers, "desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues" 1 Corinthians 14:39.
"What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding" 1 Corinthians 14:15.
