Day # 28 : The Greatest Remains{ HeArT to hEaRt }

Day # 28 : The Greatest Remains what happens in the end?
1 Corinthians 13, lists every characteristic and value of God's love and is a guideline for our love. At the end of the chapter, what is declared is the ultimate end to our journey on earth.

It is a fact for humankind, that we abide with three concepts that get us somewhere. They take us to the end of the road... Listen to Paul's closing. It's good news :)

{ And now abides faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.}
1 Corinthians 13:13

What three driving forces do each of us live by?

We trudge the journey because we have faith in the trustworthy One who walks ahead!  We believe in the One who gets us through our days.
We endure the rough patches because we have HoPe that the One who knows the path, knows the plan to get us to His destination.
We prevail to the end because He loved us so, to create us, send us His Jesus and redeem us to His Kingdom.

It's interesting that we are told that two of these are less important than the third.  When our Christ, Jesus returns, in all glory, to establish His eternal Kingdom, we will have no more need of faith or hope. (Revelation 21: 3-7)

No more FaiTh because we will see Him!  Our faith will be sealed with FACT! (Revelation 1:5-7)
No more hope because we will receive all we ever hoped for. Our hope will be replaced with PERFECTION!
But take away the LOVE and the bottom would fall out. The whole foundation and all victory would crumble with it.
Good news. That's not going to happen. This one remains. The greatest of the three, packs the punch! Enough of a punch to defeat all adversity, all suffering, pain, sin and darkness.

The LoVe that laid the foundation of the world, created little ol' you and me. The love that sustains the earth and all that's in heaven and earth, guides you. The LoVe that will set up the eternal Kingdom,  has bought you a place there. Have you accepted the gift of everlasting life with the True, Living God?! It is still available.

God will make all things new at the end of earthly time. (Revelation 21:5) He will also make you new when we come face to face with the One, who you accept by grace through faith! (1 John 3:2)  We will live forever, exist forever ... by LoVe! This love from the Alpha and Omega, that was from beginning, will sustain until the end.  It will bring a new beginning and will last eternally!  (Revelation 21:5-6)

FaiTh, HoPe, and LoVe.
         The greatest remains!

We have come to the end of our journey in "Heart to Heart".  May the GrEaTesT (♡) remain !
