Characteristics of Christian Love, Part Two

From Series: Firm Foundation, Volume 6

1 Corinthians 13:4-7  (ID: 1719)

Paul taught that love is not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs, and does not delight in evil. Instead, it rejoices in the truth and always protects. Continuing his study through the characteristics of genuine Christian love, Alistair Begg challenges us to examine whether we display the same love Jesus so generously lavishes upon us to the world.

4Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;2 6it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
