Great quote in "proof of your love" by king & country.I was listening to K-LOVE the other day and toward the end of Proof Of Your Love by King & Country, there is a quote. I looked it up to share here and actually found out that it is from a bible version called The Message. Here’s the passage:

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. (1 Corinthians 13:1-7, The Message)

Such a beautiful quote. To get an idea about how profound this is, read it in whatever version of the bible you use. I’m not totally sure about the accuracy of this translation, but The Message is best described by the man who did the translation, Eugene Peterson:

“While I was teaching a class on Galatians, I began to realize that the adults in my class weren’t feeling the vitality and directness that I sensed as I read and studied the New Testament in its original Greek. Writing straight from the original text, I began to attempt to bring into English the rhythms and idioms of the original language. I knew that the early readers of the New Testament were captured and engaged by these writings and I wanted my congregation to be impacted in the same way. I hoped to bring the New Testament to life for two different types of people: those who hadn’t read the Bible because it seemed too distant and irrelevant and those who had read the Bible so much that it had become ‘old hat.’”

I hope this inspires you to further explore the word of God and all of the great things he has planned for you.

God Bless

-Matt
