We hear a lot about us walking in love with one another. Yet we look around and we don’t see the evidence of it. The love of God (Agape) never puts conditions on people. Its a love that exist regardless of changing situations. (It just keeps on loving-not just in words but in actions also.)
So we can look to the scriptures to find out how love reacts, because God is love. He doesn’t just have love– HE IS LOVE. We are His children and love (His Love) has been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. Romans 5:5
I Corinthians 13:1-8 Amplified Bible says this about Love or God— If I can speak in the tongues of men and even of angles, but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as is inspired by God’s love for and in us, I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
And if I have prophetic powers (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose) and understand all the secret truths and mysteries, and possess all knowledge and I have (sufficient) faith so that I can remove mountains, but have not love (God’s love in me) I am nothing (a useless nobody).
Even if I dole out all that I have (to the poor in providing) food, and if I surrender my body to be burned or in order that I may glory, but have not the love (God’s love in me),
I gain nothing.
Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride) it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way for it is not self seeking, it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it, (it pays no attention to a suffered wrong).
It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevails.
Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything without weakening.
Love never fails (fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end).
I John 4: 18 There is no fear in love (dread does not exist, but full grown (complete perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment and so he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love (is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection).
Jude 20 But you, beloved build yourself up (founded) on your most holy faith (make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher, praying in the Holy Spirit: Guard and keep yourself in the love of God!
