I'll jump back intou our Love Series next week... Today on my "day off" I'm busy recording/producing vids and music for my PastorBradRocks YouTube channel---including a three-part teaching series about Jesus & Noah -- how Noah foreshaddowed the ministry of Jesus in some really cool ways! I'll post that soon!
So--today let me simply share some verse on LOVE to encourage you. As you read them--consider two things: a) the fact that all of these verses are about the same AGAPE love Paul is speaking of in 1 Cor. 13, and b) as your read, consider the attributes of Agape we've talked about thus far---how do they impact your understanding of these verses?
1 John 4:8 - He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Romans 5:8 - But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
John 13:34-35 - A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
John 15:13 - Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
1 John 4:18 - There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Thanks for reading---Remember to share! Catch you on Monday!
