Here is a free 1 Corinthians 13 Devotional on Love for your church.
If you’ve ever attended a Christian wedding, then you likely heard 1 Corinthians 13 recited during the ceremony. It’s the crown jewel of love passages. The opening phrase, “Love is patient, love is kind” evokes imagery of a happy couple at the altar for most people.
These words are perfect for a wedding, but that’s not the primary reason Paul wrote them. The Apostle wrote his first letter to the Corinthians to correct problematic behavior in a dysfunctional church. 1 Corinthians 13 isn’t a passage of affection, it’s a passage of correction. These words seem sweet like candy, but they can also be a tough pill to swallow.
Paul leveraged this beautifully written chapter to set his friends in Corinth straight. He identified some deep-rooted character flaws that acted like cracks in the foundation of a building. They were discrete, but could eventually lead to destruction. The message may be a couple of thousand years old, but every word still rings true today. In this devotional, we are going to closely examine the nature of true God-given love—both what it is and what it is not.
