1 Corinthians 13:4-8 describes what love is. God is love (1 John 4: 8, 16) so therefore this passage also describes God. These attributes describe the way God the Holy Spirit is when He is working in us. It explains how He acts towards us and towards others.
If you love to gaze upon the Lord as I do then these words carry deep emotional, spiritual and mental impacts with them (see Hebrews 4:12). Meditate on them and let the Holy Spirit breathe within you.
A friend and I were sharing some time in the Lord’s presence recently when he got a picture of a hummingbird somewhat similar to the one featured here. In his picture the bird was also taking nectar from the flower while on the wing or “humming” as he put it. Or in other words, the bird was singing and simultaneously drinking, a feat impossible for any bird except it as far as I know.
The picture was connected to worship. We are spiritual creatures and when we worship we also drink deeply from the Lord’s presence. As Jesus put it, we drink His blood and eat His flesh – an expression of utter intimacy.
We too can sing and drink at the same time. And we should, often.
