Therefore, through that expression from God, we know that love is the greatest. Love is everlasting and never-ending. Love can have a positive meaning or negative. The way people express love varies between culture and circumstances. Love can be expressed as being kind to one person or cruel to another. I think it is important to understand what God is trying to teach us about love and how it is defined in His Word, even if we cannot fully comprehend His love for us. So, what is love? In 1 Corinthians , it says:.
Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy, is not boastful, is not conceited, does not act improperly, is not selfish, is not provoked, and does not keep a record of wrongs. Love finds no joy in unrighteousness but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. But it also says that if you do not love, then you do not know God.
God created us out of His love, and that love is from God alone. His love is incomprehensible to the human mind, but we do know this:. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
When the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they came together. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. It is not easy to express love all the time. We get tired, frustrated, angry, and many other emotions and expressions. Our sin and our flesh try to rule over our spirit. Our spirit, which is the Holy Spirit within us, begins to transform our lives when we receive salvation.
Salvation itself isn't easy either. We have to go through sanctification. There are many verses in the Bible that help us understand how God sanctifies us. But one of my favorites is Galatians ,. I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
How does the process of sanctification help us in understanding why love is the greatest? Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ 1 Thessalonians Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry Colossians God gave us these fruits to produce because He loves us.
Jesus was the best example of a human who produced these things. But also, Jesus showed us, in the flesh, what love is. Jesus showed us patience, kindness, righteousness, truth, endurance, and much more described in 1 Corinthians What then shall we say to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died — more than that, who was raised —who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation , or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord Romans Rebecca Mashburn Gordon has a wonderful husband named Joseph.
