Galatians 5:22-23 (NCV) 22 But the Spirit produces the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. There is no law that says these things are wrong. What is Love?
1 Corinthians 13:1-8a (NCV) I may speak in different languages of people or even angels. But if I do not have love, I am only a noisy bell or a crashing cymbal. 2 I may have the gift of prophecy. I may understand all the secret things of God and have all knowledge, and I may have faith so great I can move mountains. But even with all these things, if I do not have love, then I am nothing. 3 I may give away everything I have, and I may even give my body as an offering to be burned. But I gain nothing if I do not have love. 4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. 5 Love is not rude, is not selfish, and does not get upset with others. Love does not count up wrongs that have been done. 6 Love takes no pleasure in evil but rejoices over the truth. 7 Love patiently accepts all things. It always trusts, always hopes, and always endures. 8 Love never ends. What is Love?
1 Corinthians 13:1-8a (NCV) I am patient and kind. I am not jealous, I don’t brag, and I am not proud. I am not rude, I am not selfish, and I do not get upset with others. I do not count up wrongs that have been done. I take no pleasure in evil but rejoice over the truth. I patiently accept all things. I always trust, always hope, and always endure. I will never end. What is Love?
1 John 4:18 (NCV) 18 Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears. What is Love?
7 Dear friends, we should love each other, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has become God ’ s child and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:7-8 (NCV) Who is Love?
Who to Love? Matthew 22:34-40 (NCV) 34 When the Pharisees learned that the Sadducees could not argue with Jesus’ answers to them, the Pharisees met together. 35 One Pharisee, who was an expert on the law of Moses, asked Jesus this question to test him: 36 “Teacher, which command in the law is the most important?” 37 Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and most important command. 39 And the second command is like the first: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ 40 All the law and the writings of the prophets depend on these two commands.”
1 John 4:20-21 (NCV) 20 If people say, “I love God,” but hate their brothers or sisters, they are liars. Those who do not love their brothers and sisters, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have never seen. 21 And God gave us this command: Those who love God must also love their brothers and sisters. Who to Love?
