1. The Greatest Thing in the World

 

1 Corinthians 13:13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

 

 2. Love Defined

 

 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.3. Our Chief Love

 

Deut.10:12 “And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the Lord your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul.

 

Mark 12:30 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.

 

4. Love Inspiring Love

 

1 John 4:19 We love each other because he loved us first.5. Service Without Love

 

 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

 

5. The Assurance of Love

 

Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

 

6. Proof of Discipleship

 

John 13:35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”

 

1 John 4:21 And he has given us this command: Those who love God must also love their Christian brothers and sisters

 

1 John 4:7-8 Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. 8 But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
