Love Chapter — fresh glimpses of 1 Corinthians 13

“Love your enemies.” Be patient and kind to them, without envy, boasting, or pride. Don’t dishonor them. Refuse to be easily angered with them. Keep no record of their wrongs.

Love “is not self-seeking.” Being controlled by our own desires diminishes our ability to love.

“Love does not delight in evil.” Be careful what you enjoy and delight in watching on TV and other media.

According to the Love Chapter, love celebrates truth, not falsehood. A lack of trust, hope, or perseverance is a lack of love.

Love flows from heart to heart. To close your heart is to shut off the switch on the life enriching current of love.

Christianity isn’t about winning political battles. It’s about loving God, loving others, and even loving your enemies.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
