In the following passages from the Bible Paul says this,
2 Corinthians Chapter 13:27-29
In toil and in hardship, through hunger and thirst, through frequent fastings, through cold and exposure. And apart from these things, there is the daily pressure upon me of my anxiety for all the churches. Who is weak? Who is led to sin, and I am not indignant?
(By the way feel free to read as many different versions, just try to get the TRUTH)
1 Corinthians Chapter 12:27-30
Application to Christ
Now you are Christ's body, and individually parts of it. Some people God has designated in the church to be, first, apostles; second, prophets; third, teachers; then, mighty deeds; then gifts of healing, assistance, administration, and varieties of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work mighty deeds? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Strive for the greatest spiritual gifts.
The Way of Love
But I shall show you a still more excellent way.
If I speak in human angelic tongues, but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy, and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Who has the ability to speak in angelic tongues, but does not have love? Who would sound like a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal without love? Who has the gift of prophecy, can comprehend all mysteries and has all the knowledge? Who has all faith, but does not have love? WHO HAS EVERYTHING AND HAS GIVEN UP EVERYTHING BUT DOES NOT LOVE?
MIGHTY IS THE POWER OF THE CROSS NOW MAY YOU UNDERSTAND THIS POSTING.
