True Love

True Love

I Corinthians 13

  1. Love is essential, not optional. (Verse 1-3)
    • Three times in the first three verses the phrase “but do not have love” is stated. Then Paul tells us the result:
      • Noisy gong, clanging cymbal. (verse 1)
      • I am nothing.
      • Profits nothing.
    • Takeaway love is like a car without wheels.
  2. Love is a demonstration, not a feeling.
    • Love is demonstrative.
    • Love is a commitment.
  3. Love is a magnet that draws us together. (Verses 4-7)
    • Patient.
    • Kind.
    • Not jealous.
    • Not bragging.
    • Not arrogant.
    • Does not act unbecomingly.
    • Does not seek its own.
    • Does not provoke.
    • Does not take in account wrongs of others.
    • Does not rejoice in unrighteousness.
    • Rejoices with truth.
    • Bears all things.
    • Believes all things.
    • Hopes all things.
    • Endures all things.
    • Love NEVER fails.
