• “When God was pleased to call me to Christ’s mission, which is a mission of peace and love to the sinful and the wandering, He taught me that I must be willing to be, in some sense, a partaker in Christ’s sufferings.” – Madame Guyon

Knowledge Without Love by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/30/12

“I think it’s great that my wife’s been taking all those Bible classes, but it’s kind of intimidating.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The apostle Paul says, “If I understand all mysteries and all knowledge . . . but have not love, I am nothing.” As women today, we have opportunities like never before to study the Word of God. But our knowledge has to be balanced with love.

“She tells me that she wants me to lead spiritually, but when we read the Bible, she argues with everything I say.”

Nancy: Knowledge without love puffs up. It makes us arrogant and hard to live with. If our knowledge doesn’t make us more humble and submissive to the authorities God’s put in our lives, then it’s worth nothing.

We need to keep growing in our knowledge of God’s Word, but let’s also ask Him to develop in us truly humble, loving hearts.

  • ”As we grow spiritually, God begins to wean us from things that we think we can’t live without: things, comfort, the longing for life to ‘work.’ That’s a childish instinct, to say, ‘Life has to work the way I want it to work, and now’.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
