Dana Moore: We Live the Greatest Virtues (1 Corinthians 13:13)
Dana Moore, pastor of Second Baptist Church in Corpus Christi, Texas, shares a story from the TV show “American Pickers” in which a Hollywood cowboy wanted his name to go with his stuff; he wanted to be remembered. Moore transitions into how Christians will be remembered, focusing on the three virtues listed in 1 Corinthians 13:13—faith, hope and love. He describes the three virtues in relation to salvation, fear, the future and a person’s identity in Christ.
This sermon was delivered on Aug. 2, 2020, for the morning worship service of Second Baptist Church in Corpus Christi. It is part of the Identity as Christians series.
