Ya Got it? – The Saturday Morning Post by Pastor Ted Stahl

Good morning! Next year, corporately, we are going to start memorizing passages from God’s Word. Maybe 1Corinthians 13 is a good place to start, or at least be on the list. Jesus said, in John 15:12, “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.” And in chapter 13, once again we see that the King James Bible is the perfect translation. Jesus loved us with the agape love: the giving love: charity. Let me ask you, “Ya got it?” Do you have charity, the giving love, the agape love?

Charity suffereth long and is kind. We know what kind of sinners we are, (Romans 5:8) “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Do you look at others with envy? Charity does not.

Charity does not lift itself up. Charity will cause you to do what’s right, it will not cause you to seek out others who will listen to your gossip: charity thinketh no evil. Has somebody made a comment that has made you angry? Charity is not easily provoked: they called Jesus: Beelzebub.

Do you rejoice in gossip (either giving or receiving, or any other iniquity for that matter). Charity rejoiceth in truth.

Charity beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Ya got it?

Charity never fails. Do you have it?

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. Ya got it? If you have it, then give it.

Peace. (John 3:16)
