A Deepened Understanding of 1 Corinthians 13In this book, Rosilind seeks to deepen our understanding of 1 Corinthians 13, a chapter that has long been known as "the love chapter". For years, its verses have been used in weddings and on romantic greeting cards. While it is wonderful that couples use these verses in such a way, there is so much more we can learn from 1 Corinthians 13. Rosilind has taken the time to learn how to apply this chapter from the standpoint that the book of 1 Corinthians was a letter written to a church in the town of Corinth instructing them in the area of relationship between brothers and sisters in Christ. She has taken what the Lord has taught her through her time of study and reflection and put it between the pages of 14 Days of Agape, so that we too may deepen our understanding.
This journey into 1 Corinthians 13 began toward the end of 2012 for Rosilind. At the end of the journey, she was left with a new perspective on the aspects of love, the local church, and her relationship with the body of Christ. 14 Days of Agape includes all of these aspects in a message that she hopes will speak to your heart as it spoke to hers while being revealed to her by God.
A Peek Inside 14 Days of AgapeI promise, once you begin reading 14 Days of Agape, it will be hard to put it down! Over and over I was convicted and challenged by the truths Rosilind shared. I was encouraged as well, to strive to grow in learning how to love the Church body God's way.

- About the Author
14 Days of Agape challenges and inspires me to move beyond my understanding of 1 Corinthians 13 to include a new understanding that Paul is speaking to my relationship within the Church body, and to express Agape love in all of my relationships. My prayer as I read was, "Oh Lord, help me to have this kind of love."
My heart was truly convicted as I read Rosilind's words. There are many times I have failed to display Agape love. With the new knowledge gained after reading 14 Days of Agape, I now know what to specifically ask the Holy Spirit to help develop inside my heart so that I can grow in this area of my Christian walk.
I'm left with the challenge to live up to the words of Jesus recorded for us in John 13:35, "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
