DescriptionVerses about love. I have been loved with the love of God. I'm commanded and enabled to share that same, powerful love with others.
1 Corinthians 16:14
14 Let all that you do be done in love.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
1 John 4:16
16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
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.
9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment,
15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
1 Corinthians 12:31-13:13
31 But earnestly desire the higher gifts.
And I will show you a still more excellent way.
13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
4 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. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
1 John 3:18
18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
1 Peter 4:8
8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
13:1 Let brotherly love continue.
12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,
as a father the son in whom he delights.
17 I love those who love me,
and those who seek me diligently find me.
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
1 Peter 2:17
17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
1 Thessalonians 3:12
12 and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you,
14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
32 “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.
47 Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.”
9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. 28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
12 Hatred stirs up strife,
but love covers all offenses.
2 Thessalonians 3:5
5 May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.
1 John 4:11
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
1 John 4:19
19 We love because he first loved us.
