Love Love Love

  1. The Bible says the greatest faith or love can be found in 1 Corinthians 13:13
       (1 Cor 13:13 KJV)  And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

  1. Now that we know that charity means love what should happen to it. Jude 2.
    (Jude 1:2 KJV)  Mercy unto you, and peace and love, be multiplied.
3. His word says that God knows if Love is in our Hearts?
(John But I know you, that ye have not the love of God inyou.
(John 5:43 KJV)  I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
(John 5:44 KJV)  How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
(John 5:45 KJV)  Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
(John 5:46 KJV)  For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.5:42 KJV) 
(John 5:47 KJV)  But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
  1. God wants us to have the same kind of love for our enemies as we have for each other. Love can conquer our enemies and let them see what we really have in our hearts.
(1 John 3:11 KJV)  For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
(1 John 3:12 KJV)  Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
(1 John 3:13 KJV)  Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
(1 John 3:14 KJV)  We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
(1 John 3:15 KJV)  Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
(1 John 3:16 KJV)  Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
(1 John 3:17 KJV)  But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
