The confrontation is intended to be redemptive—is designed to help the addicted person to move away from self-destructive behavior into a more positive lifestyle—and to provide the addict’s family with a safe, wholesome environment. Love cannot be intelligent unless it be taught of God, and cannot be free and cheerful unless He smile upon it. This is the only natural force that works by tenderness.
As noted above, Paul singles out prophecy as a superior gift (14:1-5), second only to being an apostle (12:28)—but prophecy without love has no value and imputes no value to the prophet. "The just man lives by his own faith," and hopes good to himself; but love is like the vine (Psalm 80:8), or the sun in the sky, that throws his comfortable beams upon all, and forbears not to warm even that earth that beareth weeds. "Love is strong as death." But love is more; it is a spring of action on the part of God. II. 3).II. As a source of comfort and happiness to the soul. 4:9-12.
If you live without the consciousness of God from a Biblical standpoint you are dead.
While knowledge in the service of others can be good, people who use their knowledge to establish their superiority or dominance over other people are not in accord with God’s will.

Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. THE ABIDING CHARACTER OF THESE GRACES. It induces the minister of the Cross to endanger life, that he may save his heathen brother.III. There is more light to break forth over God's Word, and the loving heart will be the first to catch it. It is the vanguard of the soul, on its travel forward in the wilderness of life. Put charity alongside humbleness, bowels of mercies, long-suffering, or forgiving, and then it seems to gather up into itself their charms, and throw over them its charms, and shine forth in the wry midst of them the "bond of perfectness."(R. Note that all three of the Christian graces will endure, even though faith will become sight and hope will be fulfilled. Consider the lesson we have learned in our war. But that, once commenced, is a momentous event; the birth of a principle which will continue to operate; the beginning of a life which will go on without end. Love can say — before faith and hope were "I am." 1. It is the bond of perfection: faith is not so termed. The word esoptron can mean “looking glass” or “mirror.” We need to keep in mind that people in Paul’s day didn’t have the kind of high-quality mirrors that we take for granted today.

For most certainly I tell you, whoever may tell this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and doesn’t doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is happening; he shall have whatever he says” (Mark 11:22-23). By a strange paradox, the castles built by sense are vapoury visions, while the buildings of faith are substantial and enduring.
Both faith and hope are receptive in their character; but love is communicative, therefore is it "greatest," for "it is more blessed to give than to receive"! God loved the world; Christ loved the souls He died to redeem; Christians are moved by love for those around them; or else the work is drudgery, and can never claim blessing.2. Love informs life; lust exhausts it. We don’t understand everything — we see as if through a mirror or a dark glass. "God so loved the world," etc.
He is told "above all" to take the shield of faith. It is the fulfilling of the law: where hath failed such a title? For how canst thou know or love God if thou fillest thy mind with thoughts of all things under the sun, and thy thoughts wander to the ends of the earth, and thou gatherest them not unto God?4.
It will be as applicable in the New Age as it is in this one. Hope imparts to our souls a peace and support amidst the trials and duties of life, which, though not essential in any particular degree to our salvation, yet is requisite so far, as preventing despondency of mind under spiritual trials, as proving a source of the highest enjoyment to the heart of man in this world, and as supplying the strongest encouragement to steadfastness and diligence in God's service.

Major Prophets IT WAS THE EXERCISE OF THIS VIRTUE THAT MADE POSSIBLE OUR DELIVERANCE FROM SIN. A prisoner, detained in his cell for some supposable reason, after he had received his pardon, would be saved both by faith and hope; faith, in the word that announced his pardon would assure him of salvation; the prospect of release from his prison cell would be his bright hope; at the hour of his departure he would "receive the end of his faith" — full deliverance.III. They are under certain conditions necessary states of mind; but love, disinterested, godly love, is in itself a virtue. Inconsequentillation!
