• “When we begin to understand what the blood of Jesus does for us, we will testify to the power of His blood, and shall thus have power continually to overcome the enemy. It is blessed to note that the blood of Jesus is the purchase price of our full salvation. ‘Take heed…to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood’ (Acts 20:28)” – Carrie Judd Montgomery

Love is Like a Diamond by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/01/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: One thing that makes a diamond beautiful is that it has so many facets. You keep seeing new reflections as you look at it from different angles. I think that’s a lot like love.

The apostle Paul helps us see true, godly love from various angles in 1 Corinthians 13. He talks about fifteen different characteristics of love, as if he’s holding a diamond up to the light.

Now, I know that the diamond of my love life has some flaws. God’s Word is like a magnifying glass, showing me areas where I need to be refined. When we’re willing to let the Master Cutter examine us under that microscope, He’ll help us become more and more beautiful.

With that in mind, you may want to take a fresh look at 1 Corinthians 13. Ask the Master Cutter to bring out every bit of brilliance in your love life.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”
