Love Is

What is love? Ask 100 different people and I bet you would get 100 different answers. Love is a feeling... Love is an action... Love is an experience... One fact that we would all agree on is that a life without love would seem meaningless... hopeless... depressing... futile. Does that describe your experience with love at times? Maybe we really don't fully understand what Love Is. Join us as we journey through the famous "love chapter" of the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13, and discover what Love Is.

1 Corinthians 13:4-6

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; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.

1 Corinthians 13:7-8a

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
