Bible Verses

1 Corinthians 16:24 My love in Christ Jesus be with you all

1 Cor. 6:24 My love in Christ Jesus be with you all

1 Cor. 16:24 My love in Christ Jesus be with you all (Recovery Version)

People always associate love with the heart. But Paul puts love with the spirit in 1 Corinthians. In 4:21 he spoke of coming to them either with a rod or in love and a spirit of meekness. Love is even deeper than the heart. Love is in the spirit, because it is in our spirit that Christ dwells. The real love, which is the expression of Christ, goes with our spirit because Christ is in our spirit. In 16:18 Paul said that his spirit had been refreshed. Then in verse 24 he said, “My love in Christ Jesus be with you all.” His spirit was refreshed and his love was with them. Love goes along with our spirit. If our love is merely out of our heart, that is a natural love, not the divine love which is the expression of Christ. The love which is the expression of Christ comes out of our spirit. (Witness Lee, The Experience of Christ as Life for the Building Up of the Church, Chapter 6, Section 2)
