A GREATER LOVE 1 Cor 13

Nyni de menei pistis*, elpis**, agape*** ta tria tauta meizon de touton he agape. 1 Corinthians 13:13 (Greek) Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 A GREATER LOVE A greater love, a holy kiss, one like the lyrics: i feel the earth move under my feet i feel the sky come tumbling down, tumbling down**** the Spirit of God, his breath — knocks you to your knees. there is no greater thing than this. anguished hands bleed in torturous black and blues, never expectant of good news. faith parts hands, rises them like balloons, takes the lead off our muddy boots. we are free to seek, free to move and praise takes us higher and higher. heavy-hearted Peter, denied Jesus three times and three times “no greater friend than this” asks Peter, “Do you love me?” we so want to know we’re loved. agape-love, a higher love — a holy kiss. 10/18/2019 1st Corinthians 13:13 Inspiration Poetry Contest Sponsor: Regina Riddle *faith **hope ***love ****From Carol King’s I Feel The Earth Move
