The Way of Christ

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not Christ, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not Christ, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not Christ, I gain nothing.

Christ is patient and kind; Christ does not envy or boast; He is not arrogant or rude. He does not insist on his own way; He is not irritable or resentful; He does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Christ bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Christ never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away…

So now faith, hope, and Christ abide, these three; but the greatest of these is Christ.
