Love is delights in truth NOT wrongdoing

1Corinthians 13:1-8 If I speak in the
tongues of men and of angels, but have
not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging
cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers,
and understand all mysteries and all
knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as
to remove mountains, but have not love,
I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have,
and if I deliver up my body……
to be burned, but have not love, I gain
nothing. 4 Love is patient and kind; love
does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant
5 or rude. It does not insist on its own
way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it
does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but
rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all
things, believes all things, hopes all
things, endures all things……
8 Love
never ends. As for prophecies,
they will pass away; as for tongues, they
will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass
1 John 4:19–21 We love because he first
loved us. 20 If anyone says, “I love God,”
and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he
who does not love his brother whom he
has seen cannot love God whom he has
not seen. 21 And this commandment we
have from him: whoever loves God must
also love his brother.
John 13:34–35 A new commandment I
give to you, that you love one another:
just as I have loved you, you also are to
love one another. 35 By this all people
will know that you are my disciples, if
you have love for one another.
Love is kind NOT indulgent
Matthew 5:44–45 But I say to you, Love
your enemies and pray for those who
persecute you, 45 so that you may be
sons of your Father who is in heaven.
Love is accepting NOT affirming
James 2:8–9 If you really fulfill the royal
law according to the Scripture, “You shall
love your neighbor as yourself,” you are
doing well. 9 But if you show partiality,
you are committing sin and are
convicted by the law as transgressors.
Love is delights in truth NOT wrongdoing
1 John 2:4–6 Whoever says “I know him”
but does not keep his commandments is
a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5 but
whoever keeps his word, in him truly the
love of God is perfected. By this we may
know that we are in him: 6 whoever says
he abides in him ought to walk in the
same way in which he walked.
Luke 6:26 “Woe to you, when all people
speak well of you, for so their fathers did
to the false prophets.
You can only begin loving, when you
stop wanting to be liked.
You can help people come out from
under the law….
You can help people stop trampling on
Hebrews 10:29 How much worse
punishment, do you think, will be
deserved by the one who has trampled
underfoot the Son of God, and has
profaned the blood of the covenant by
which he was sanctified, and has
outraged the Spirit of grace?
I will not tell you what can and cannot do
(under the law)
I will tell you what I will and will not do
(According to God’s Word & by His grace)
I will tell you when you’re doing something
you shouldn’t (trampling on grace)
