And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
At the 1990 FIFA World Cup, the three greatest tenors in the world came together to sing for the first time: Plácido Domingo, José Carreras, and Luciano Pavarotti. The response was beyond belief, and the three went on to record albums and tour in stadiums all over the world. They were known as The Three Tenors.
In the New Testament, the “Three Tenors” of faith, hope, and love make repeated appearances. The apostle Paul often grouped these three into a harmonious whole and emphasized them. Spiritual maturity is found in trusting God with all our problems (faith), remaining optimistic in life (hope), and caring more for others than for ourselves (love).
Why is love the greatest of these? When we place our faith in Christ and develop a hopeful attitude, the stage is set for our love to flourish—and love is the fulfillment of all the law.
Thank God for His tremendous trio of Spirit-inspired attitudes to rule your mind today.
Faith and hope are, in one sense, means to an even greater end, without which they would be incomplete: they transform us so that our lives overflow with Christlike love. Haddon Anderson
