God’s Kind of Love (Part 1)

God’s Kind of Love (Part 1) ​By Don Krow

Today we’re going to talk about God’s kind of love. In 1 Corinthians 13:13 it says this, “Now abideth faith, hope, charity [love], these three; but the greatest of these is charity [love]” (brackets mine). Then 1 Corinthians 14:1 says, “Follow after charity [love] and [yet] desire [earnestly] spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy” (brackets mine). The Bible says to follow after love, pursue it, and make it your highest aim. Some translations say to make it your greatest quest. It’s the only thing we’ll take out of this life into eternity. We won’t take our cars, our homes, or our money, but we will take the love that Jesus Christ has imparted into our lives by the Holy Spirit. Love is the only thing that has eternal value and substance. To read the full lesson text click here.
