Topic: *KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT LOVE IS INCOMPLETE*
1 Corinthians 8:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
8 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.
2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
Beloved love is the most powerful force that can get one to do things he will naturally not do or sacrifice for.
Beloved, for lack of knowledge we perish but I tell you, for lack of love we destroy each other.
What is knowledge if there is no love. Knowledge is incomplete without love. Knowledge is of the mind and love is of the heart.
Knowledge without God makes people arrogant because pride fills their mind when they acquire it but love makes people humble or lowly because love fills the heart with humility.
The Agape of God when exhibited, builds up a person. Love encourages others and helps them to develop or grow up.
Beloved, having knowledge about God without loving Him is useless.
Knowing God is the most important knowledge one must acquire on earth. Knowledge of God develops love in the heart for God and for others.
Beloved, only God has all the knowledge in this world and He reveals it to His people as and when He so desires. God knows those who love Him and He loves those people. He gives them the knowledge they need to live successfully because He adds wisdom and understanding in Him to the knowledge He gives them.
Beloved, no matter what you know, without knowing and loving God, you are still empty and will waste away.
Beloved, *IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. Jesus loves God and this love empowers Him to build others up. For you, who do you love? And how does God feature in your love?
Prayer: Daddy please empower me to love and love right so that you teach me the right way to go in the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
_EXHIBIT YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS AND THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY SHALL SURELY REWARD YOU_
