We learnt in the previous post about the power in the Holy Ghost, and what it really is for in a believer’s life. The second is, Love.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

1. Power
3. Sound Mind

We know God is Love (1 John 4:8).

We know that God’s love was actioned through Jesus (John 3:16).

We know love is shed in our hearts through the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5)

What does Paul say about Love in 1 Corinthians 13:3-8?
Each point is a sermon in itself. Please prayerfully read what’s almost impossible to explain in a few words.

  1. Love is patience,
  2. Love is kind;
  3. Love does not envy
  4. Love does not brag,
  5. Love is not puffed up,
  6. Love does not behave itself unseemly,
  7. Love does not seek her own,
  8. Love is not easily provoked,
  9. Love thinks no evil;
  10. Love does not rejoice in iniquity,
  11. Love rejoices in the truth;
  12. Love bears all things,
  13. Love believes all things,
  14. Love hopes all things,
  15. Love endures all things.
  16. Love never fails

A Christian judges self by these standards. God is gracious to those who abide in him.
