Powerful and Positive Negatives — What True Love is NOT


Date : 2019-02-13
Speaker : John Reim
1 Corinthians 13:1-7
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body [a]to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not [b]puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, [c]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.

Hymn: TLH 363, st. 1-3 :
To our Redeemer’s Glorious Name — Organ Audio

1. To our Redeemer’s glorious name
Awake the sacred song.
Oh, may His love, immortal flame,
Tune every heart and tongue.

2. His love, what human thought can reach,
What mortal tongue portray?
Imagination’s utmost stretch
In wonder dies away.

3. He left His radiant throne on high,
Left realms of heavenly bliss,
And came to earth to bleed and die,–
Was ever love like this?
