“But earnestly desire and strive for the greater gifts [if acquiring them is going to be your goal]. And yet I will show you a still more excellent way [one of the choicest graces and the highest of them all: unselfish love]. “– I Corinthians 12:31
Unselfish Love is the love of Christ poured into our lives. Paul calls living by this love a more excellent way. It is not that other ways in Christ are bad, it is that Christ’s love delighting and overflowing in our hearts is the pinnacle of our existence. Christ’s love is the most powerful action in the universe. Christ’s love is the beginning and the end. Very often as Christian’s, we settle for value and acceptance in things that don’t fully encompass Christ’s love. These things satisfy us for a season, but they leave us wanting more and often yearning for new seasons. In Christ, we have entered the perpetual season of God’s favour through grace.
