Verse Eight & Nine
- Number 8
1 Corinthians 13:13 (NKJV) - And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest
of these is love.
"All you need is love," and when all else is gone, love will remain. One day, what I
have faith in will be right in front of me, and faith will be needed no more. One day,
all of my hopes will be met - and more - as I enter the presence of God almighty. But
love will remain, for eternity, for God is love.
- Number 9
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on
the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of
wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that
you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate
of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of
peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword
of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
I'd love to say there is some super spiritual reason I like this passage, but in all
honesty, I love this passage simply because I like armor and swords and stuff like that -
so this one gets my geeky heart pumping. But knowing about armor does help understand this
passage much better.
Until next time.
