1 Corinthians 13:1 – 13
1 John 3:1 – 24
1 Corinthians 13:4–8 (NKJV)
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
I Knowing God’s standards leading to the conviction of sin
II Faith in Jesus as one’s Lord and Saviour
III Sincere desire and earnest effort to keep God’s standards.
