What is the greatest thing in all the world?
Henry Drummond was a Scottish evangelist who was mightily used of the Lord. D.L. Moody called him the most Christ-like young man he ever knew. Though I cannot endorse everything that Drummond wrote, I wholeheartedly recommend to you his commentary on 1 Corinthians 13.
Many Bible students believe that Henry Drummond’s, The Greatest Thing In All the World, is the finest thing ever written – the defining work – on the love of God.
Personally God has used it in my own life. It is more than comforting; it is convicting. We desperately need a revival of the love of God in hearts, homes, and churches. It is the only thing that can cut through the hatred in our world.
Moody himself once said,
“The only way any church can get a blessing is to lay aside all difference, all criticism, all coldness and party feeling, and come to the Lord as one man; and when the church lives in the power of the 13th chapter of 1 Corinthians, I am sure that many will be added daily to the flock of God. I would like to have the church read that chapter together on their knees…and as you do so, pray God to apply it with power…My heart goes out to you, and I long to see you all coming constantly to God for a fresh supply of love.”
This is one of the keys that unlocks the door to revival. A fresh glimpse of the love of God.
I am happy to announce that we have adapted Drummond’s brief book and made it available as a free download this month. Simply enter your name and email and the document will auto download.
The Greatest Thing In All the World is something you will want to read slowly, repeatedly, meditatively, prayerfully. More than that, it will drive you to read 1 Corinthians 13 again. This portion of Scripture is a beautiful passage but it is also a sword that cuts deeply. Prepare to have your heart searched.
