The Importance of Grace and Love in Speaking the Truth

The Bible speaks a lot about the truth. It also speaks about something that we might all too easily forget or dismiss. It is a thing called love.

As the Apostle Paul writes in 1st Corinthians 13: “f I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing…now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

Without faith we cannot approach God. And without love we are nothing.

Another important thing to remember is grace without which we could not be saved. The Apostle John writes: “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
