1 Corinthians 13:1-3 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. The devil tries to get in everything, doesn't he? He has been doing that since the beginning of time. But there's one thing he cannot get in and remain the devil, the Spirit of Christ which is His love. The spirit of the devil is contrary to love. All of these things mentioned in this scripture passage seem good, they seem noble, but apparently they can be done void of love. Paul says of the devil in 2 Corinthians 11:14, ... for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. Our motivation is even more important than our actions. Why do we do what we do? When we are led by the Spirit, then we are in the Spirit of the Lord.
