If I have all the faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.—1 Cor. 13:2.

 

Jesus emphasized the all-important quality of love for God when he answered the question: “Which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” (Matt. 22:35-40) Because of the importance of both faith and love, Christian Bible writers highlighted these qualities together multiple times, often in the same sentence or phrase. Paul urged his brothers to “put on the breastplate of faith and love.” (1 Thess. 5:8) John wrote: “This is [God’s] commandment: that we have faith in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another.” (1 John 3:23) Although faith is essential, aspects of this quality will pass away when we see the fulfillment of God’s promises and experience the reality of our Christian hope. But the need to grow in love for God and for our neighbor will never cease. Thus, Paul could write: “Now, however, these three remain: faith, hope, love; but the greatest of these is love.”—1 Cor. 13:13. w16.10 4:15-17
