March 24 “Love”

How much does love have to do with faith? A lot, if you look at some key verses in the New Testament that link faith & love.
Galatians 5:16 “The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”
See also 1 Tim 1:14 & 2 Tim 1:13; 1 Thess 3:6; Colosians 1:3; Philemon 1:5; 2 Thess 1:3; 1 Thess 5:8; 1 Cor 13:2; 1 Cor 13:13

What kind of love is this talking about? It is a love of choice (a matter of the will, not just emotions), initiative (it acts first, doesn’t have to “be loved” before we “love), giving (it does something not just feels something.) It is exemplified by God—1 John 4:8; John 3:16; Romans 5:6-8

Can we love like this? 1 John 4:11; 1 John 4:8
