First Corinthians 13:8 says, "Love never fails" (NIV). Now, why will love never fail? What is it about love that's so powerful? What is it about love that produces such great and guaranteed results? How is it that Paul could be so bold and have such audacity as to declare that love never fails?

First John 4 gives us an answer to that question: "...Every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love" (1 John 4:7-8).

Now put these two Scriptures together. For God is love and love never fails. So I would be correct in saying: God never fails, because God is love.

Therefore, if you'll begin to operate in love, you'll begin to duplicate God. And when you duplicate God, the devil won't be able to tell the difference between Him and you. When you're laying hands on the sick, you duplicate God. When you're speaking in tongues, you duplicate God.

And when you put on love and begin operating in love right in the midst of the temptation not to do so, then you are God's identical twin.

When you are imitating God by putting on love, somebody will look at you and say, "I know this person comes from the Tribe of Judah. They must be kin to that Jehovah fellow, because he looks just like Him!"

And that's what we have failed to remember in our walk as Christians. We've failed to remember that all our revelation knowledge, all our gifts of the Spirit, all our speaking in tongues and dynamic understanding of prayer mean absolutely nothing if we are not clothed in love.

You're not a witness; neither can you be a good witness, without clothing yourself in love. If you haven't put on love, people will forget about your demonstration of power, because it will be completely erased when they see what kind of character you have.
