Today’s Translation: The Amplified Bible | Weekly Video: Be the Church (1 Corinthians 12:27-31) “But earnestly desire and strive for the greater gifts [if acquiring them is going to be your goal]. And yet I will show you a still more excellent way [one of the choicest graces and the highest of them all: unselfish love].” – 1 Corinthians 12:31 Live It Out! A star athlete is nothing without a healthy body. We must keep the Church healthy by exercising our faith through prayer, study and service. The Church is not a building. The Church is not an institution. The Church is the people of God. And the people of God are called to love God and neighbor above all.
