Sermon Notes

1 Corinthians 13:1-3
If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels,

  • 1 Corinthians 1:18
  • 1 Corinthians 2:6-14

but do not have love,

  • God’s Love finds its BASIS in His WILL not His works or our will or works (Romans 9:11-18, 1 John 4:9-10, Mark 12:28-34)
  • God’s Love is Truthful (2 John 1:1-3, Ephesians 4:11-16, Philippians 1:9-11)
  • God’s Love is Faithful (Lamentations 3:21-23, Psalm 94:14, Romans 8:35-39, Galatians 5:22-23)
  • If we truly are God’s children, we must Love Jesus Christ Self-Sacrificially and keep His commandments (John 8:42, John 14:21, John 15:12-14, 1 John 2:3-6, 1 John 5:1-4)
  • God’s Love is evidenced by Discipline (Hebrews 12:5-8, Revelation 3:19)
  • Those who do Not Love God are forever Accursed/Condemned (1 Corinthians 16:22)

I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains,

  • Matthew 17:19-21

but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
