Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The apostle Paul wrote the book of 1 Corinthians to a group of believers who were acting inconsiderate, breaking up into factions, and fighting with one another. He addressed their problems by writing about love.
I’ve read through 1 Corinthians looking for ways we can learn from these believers’ negative example.
First, Paul says that if we really love each other, we’ll respect each other’s gifts and strengths. We’ll be joined together with the same mind, working toward a common goal instead of working against each other.
If we’re walking in the way of love, Paul says that we’ll nurture other believers spiritually. We’ll feed the Word of God to those in spiritual need. We’ll think of others as better than ourselves, lifting them up rather than lifting ourselves up.
Are you showing love in the Body of Christ? Ask God to help you truly love and build up other believers in your church.
