VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:4-5

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬5, ESV

Love is so much more than a feeling. It is a choice and an action. Our feelings can help us be patient and kind, but it is the power of the Gospel by the Holy Spirit that truly makes it possible.

Through these, we can be like Jesus who endured mocking and beatings to bring us joy.

VerseD: 1 John 2:15-16

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
1 John 2:15‭-‬16, NASB

Love your neighbor, but do not desire his things. Love your neighbor, but do not desire her. Love your neighbor, but do not seek authority.

to save the lives of me and you
