"For I am convinced that
neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons,
neither the present nor the future,
nor any powers,
neither height nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from
the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
1 Corinthians 13 describes that love called "agape".
4 "Love (Jesus) is patient,
love (Jesus) is kind.
Love (Jesus) does not envy,
love (Jesus) does not boast,
love (Jesus) is not proud.
5 Love (Jesus) does not dishonor others,
love (Jesus) is not self-seeking,
love (Jesus) is not easily angered,
love (Jesus) keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love (Jesus) does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 Love (Jesus) always protects,
Love (Jesus) always trusts,
Love (Jesus) always hopes,
Love (Jesus) always perseveres.
8 Love (Jesus) never fails...
13 ...And now these three remain: faith, hope and love (Jesus).
But the greatest of these is love (Jesus). "
1 John 3:16
"This is how we know what love is:
Jesus Christ laid down His life for us..."
who is the faithful witness,
the firstborn from the dead,
and the ruler of the kings of the earth.
To Him who loves us
and has freed us from our sins by His blood,
6 and has made us to be a kingdom and priests
to serve His God and Father—
to Him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen."
I invite you to choose one or more of the above scriptures to put to memory this month.
Love is Jesus!
~OH, THE JOY!~
