What Is Love?

Have you ever wondered what the bibles definition of love is? Well in my “What Is Love?” bible study series I go through 1 Corinthians 13 : 4-8 to discover what God says Love is.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” – 1 Corinthians 13 : 4-8

Love Never Fails – What Is Love? – Part 15

Love Never Fails The only love I have ever encountered that has never failed me is the love of God. His love is pure, His love is truth, His love redeems, His love is transforming, His love is perfect! 1 John 4 tells us that God is love. God is love. “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and

Love Always Perseveres – What Is Love? – Part 14

Love Always Perseveres – 1 Corinthians 13:7 Perseverance is the ability to endure, to persist, to hang on and to carry on through many different types of circumstances. Perseverance is determination to work hard and to continue, even when life throws curve balls or adds pressures that cause tension and conflict. It is important to have perseverance in marriage, especially when a husband and wife have committed to each other “‘Til death do us part.” Perseverance shouts through your actions, “I won’t give up!” Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. – James 1:2-4 In marriage you will experience different seasons,

Love Always Trusts – What Is Love? – Part 12

Love Always Trusts Why is trust such an easy concept, but such a hard lesson to learn? As I remember my past relationships, I always stuck my nose into information I didn’t really want to find out. The detective inside of me always felt as though there was some mystery to uncover. Another girl, another hobby, another lie, another secret…whatever the case, I needed to get to the bottom of it. Then, God sent me my husband.  As I learned more about him and we started a serious relationship, I didn’t have that longing to get the dirt on him. He proved to me time and time again that I didn’t need to have that unsettling feeling I had in many relationships before. He made
