Pristine Grace

1 Cor 13:1-13, (LITV)
1  If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but I do not have love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
2  And if I have prophecies, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
3  And if I give out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I be burned, but I do not have love, I am not profited anything.
4  Love has patience, is kind; love is not envious; love is not vain, is not puffed up;
5  does not behave indecently, does not pursue its own things, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;
6  does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth.
7   Love quietly covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8  Love never fails. But if there are prophecies, they will be caused to cease; if tongues, they shall cease; if knowledge, it will be caused to cease.
9  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part;
10  but when the perfect thing comes, then that which is in part will be caused to cease.
11  When I was an infant, I spoke as an infant, I thought as an infant, I reasoned as an infant. But when I became a man, I caused to cease the things of the infant.
12  For now we see through a mirror in dimness, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will fully know even as I also was fully known.
13  And now faith, hope, and love, these three things remain; but the greatest of these is love.
