1 Corinthians: The Choice for the Higher Love

Mar 24, 2024    Steve Hinton

-God’s Love is All You Need.


1 Corinthians 13:4-8a “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends.”


1. See God’s Love.


Luke 6:35b “for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.”

1 John 4:9-10 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. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.


2. Receive God’s Love.


Romans 5:8 God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.


John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.


3. Walk in God’s Love.


1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us.


1 Corinthians 10:24 Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor.


Matthew 7:12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. (NIV)
