1 Corinthians 13


A tour of 1 Corinthians 13 with Ken Boa.

The third question Paul addresses relates to public worship, including improper observance of the Lord’s Supper and the selfish use of spiritual gifts (11:2-14:40). The apostle teaches that the body of Christ is a unity within diversity, and that the multiplicity of spiritual gifts must be exercised in love for the edification of the whole body. 

This great chapter on love is sandwiched right in the middle of Paul’s teaching concerning the use and abuse of spiritual gifts. Even the most dramatic gifts and sacrificial deeds are useless and dead if they are not animated by God’s love. All these gifts will be done away when we see the Lord face to face, but love will abide.



Lord, the love that comes from You is patient, kind, and not jealous; it does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
