Love is the greatest of all virtues. In John’s epistles, he states twice that “God is love” (1 John 4:8 & 16). Love is not simply an attribute of God such as His omnipotence or omniscience. It His nature, His core and defines His very being. This week, Charles Price concludes this series with an expose on the love of God that is inherent in every Christian by the indwelling Spirit of Jesus Christ.
Hope is one of the great virtues that enable us to live in dark and difficult times. Without hope we have no sense of joy, meaning or life. Author and Bible teacher, Charles Price, gives us a biblical understanding of hope and speaks on the wonderful aspects of heaven, which every person in Jesus Christ has the immense blessing of enjoying throughout eternity.
1 Corinthians, Chapter 13 is considered the classic chapter on love in which Paul beautifully states, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love (13:13). This week, Charles Price begins a three part series and explains how all of Christian experience sits on faith, hope and love. Love without faith, faith without hope and hope without love is not a functioning Christian life. Like a three-legged stool, if one of the legs breaks, the stool will collapse. We are not at liberty to have one without the other. These three must remain intact.
