1 Corinthians 13 THE PREEMINENCE OF LOVE

Today God put this Bible verse in my heart: 1 Corinthians 13 The preeminence of love. Interestingly, after finishing writing the essay 'Art is my Religion', the presence of God in my life took an unexpected turn. My spirit had been prepared to understand a new facet of our relationship. While many will understand the battle of the spirit, others have never questioned it, even have laughed at it. The reason for the last cause, will be because they were not related to it, because they did not experience it or because they did not have the awareness that they are in it, either for cultural reasons, family beliefs, or even personal decisions. Those who have touched our hearts the darkest side of the spirit, we will understand the arrival of Jesus to our life and spiritual wisdom. While there are those who got angry with religious institutions, dogmatic organizations, etc. It is true that, beyond believing in them or not, is full of people willing to make us understand that discomfort of the heart. Many times we believe that by the simple fact of breathing we are already alive, it is quite true that the body is still alive, however, our spirit does not. We can automate our life: the alarm goes off, we take a shower, we have breakfast, we go into traffic jam, then we go to work, maybe we do not like the work environment or a co-worker, we go back to traffic, maybe some physical activity, we go home, we may find less traffic, we have dinner and sleep. Whatever our routine is, although we breathe, it does not guarantee that our spirit will remain alive. We are not able to appreciate life beyond the system and that makes us spiritually dead, our heart stops feeling the life and emotions that it brings us. These activities, without the love of the spirit, lack strength, lack value, lack content of life, light, wisdom and above all, lack of love. If we understand that love is the Creator, then, we lack God and the wisdom of its creation in our lives, as well as a link with everything created. While it is true that the resurrection is to have life again in the spirit, it requires a process of gestation, to start over and to heal the wounds created by the idea of ​​separation that our ego put in the form of veils. In my life, Jesus changed every aspect of it. I lost everything, even to myself, however, the change is not only the peace of the spirit, but a change of material life also that extends to every aspect of it. A change, in which we understand that the intention behind everything is love, a love that teaches us the true essence of life. There are many testimonies that tell how their life was transformed, I also have mine, as those who decided to make a leap in our relationship with God. Or as all those who have had to live a spiritual battle, fair or unjust, and we have had to understand the depth of the doors that we open in the spirit and that affect our material lives. 

The Corinthians verse is a letter from Saint Paul to the Corinthians in which, although it speaks of love, it is a scolding for not understanding that love is not a form, but a content of the heart that leads us to love actions. With all the love of my heart, I share this verse that today God put back strongly in my heart:

1 Corinthians 13
The preeminence of love
13 If I speak human and angelic tongues, and have no love, I come to be like a metal that resonates, or a cymbal that retunes.
  2 And if I had prophecy, and understood all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I had all faith, so as to remove the mountains, and have not love, I am nothing.
  3 And if I distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, and have no love, it is of no use to me.
  4 Love is long-suffering, it is kind; love has no envy, love is not boastful, it is not puffed up;
  5 does not do anything wrong, does not seek his own, does not get angry, does not hold a grudge;
  6 he does not enjoy injustice, but he enjoys the truth.
 7 He suffers everything, he believes everything, he expects everything, he endures everything.
  8 Love never ceases to be; but the prophecies will end, and the tongues will cease, and the science will end.
  9 For partly we know, and in part we prophesy;
  10 But when the perfect comes, then what is in part will be finished.
  11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child, I judged as a child; But when I was a man, I gave up what I was as a child.
  12 Now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then we will see face to face. Now I know in part; but then I will know how I was known.
  13 And now faith, hope and love remain, these three; But the greatest of these is love.'
