1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Pastor Roger Shenk


Love is more than:

• Feeling a special attraction to someone.

• Feeling a special connection with someone.

• Feeling a special affection for someone.

 

Love is spending myself for another's good.

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:13 (TNIV)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 
1 Corinthians 13:1-8a (TNIV)

 

Love is considerate.

Do to others as you would have them do to you. 
Luke 6:31 (TNIV)

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 
Romans 12:15 (TNIV)


Love is selfless.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Phil 2:3-4 (TNIV)


Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 
Romans 12:10 (TNIV)

 

Love is sincere.

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 
Romans 12:9-10 (TNIV)
