Valentine's Day 2 : Lessons In Love


It’s Valentine’s Day and our hearts just turn to thoughts of love. If Christianity could be condensed down into one word, that word would be love. In the Greek language, however, it is not just one word; there are at least three words, agape, phileo, and eros.

Agape love is by far the most intense and deepest form of love. It is the love Jesus expects spouses to have for each other; it is also the kind of love He demands that we have for each other. In 1 Corinthians 13 the Apostle Paul gives us some lessons in love.

2. The attributes of real love, (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

A. Love is patient:
B. Love is kind:
C. Love is not envious:
D. Love does not boast: (boasting implies “I’m better than you.)
E. Love is not proud:
F. Love is not rude: concerned with other’s feelings
G. Love is not self-seeking: looks out for other’s welfare
H. Love is not easily angered: (not impossible, but not easy)
I. Love doesn’t keep score of transgressions:
J. Love rejoices in truth, not in evil
K. Love protects
L. Love trusts
M. Love has hope for the future
N. Love perseveres; it hangs in there through thick and thin
O. Love never stops

Part 3 will be posted tommorow Feb. 3, 2012
