Love Is… The Reason We’re Here on Earth

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13 NKJV)


The value of faith cannot be disputed. In fact, Hebrews 11:6 states, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God, must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Without faith, we couldn’t come to Christ, and without faith, we couldn’t walk in obedience to him.


Hope keeps us going when the situation we face seems impossible. Hope is the expectation that we will obtain something specific we desire. Think of how life would be without hope. I wouldn’t want to live a life without faith, and I wouldn’t want to live a life without hope.


The greatest of these three virtues is love. What makes love so amazing? For starters, it is what motivated the Father to send His only Son to die for us. Without love, there would have been no redemption for mankind. Not only would we be without love, but without the redemption that was precipitated by love, there would also be no faith and no hope. You see, nothing else matters without love. It is foundational for every other good thing in our lives.
