Characteristics of Christian Love, Part Three

From Series: Firm Foundation, Volume 6

1 Corinthians 13:4-7  (ID: 1722)

Much of what our culture considers “love” is far removed from the love that Paul described to the Corinthian church—love that believes all things, always hopes, always perseveres, and never fails. Throughout Scripture, though, God Himself consistently demonstrates such steadfast, encouraging love. Alistair Begg reminds us that only when the Holy Spirit works in our hearts, minds, and relationships are we enabled to love so purely.


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.
