A JOURNEY LIKE NEVER BEFORE PT FIVE

1JN 4 VS 7-21

1 John 4:7-21 (NKJV)

7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.

10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.

13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.

14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.

15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

19 We love Him because He first loved us.

20 If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?

21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.

WALKING IN LOVE PT. 2

**ARE WE EXHIBITING THE FOLLOWING TRAITS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH WALKING IN LOVE??

1. LOVE IS PATIENT IN DIFFICULTIES: “SUFFERS LONG”- GR: MAK-ROTH-OO-MEH-O WHICH MEANS:

"to not lose heart; to persevere patiently and bravely in enduring trouble and misfortune; to be patient in bearing the offenses and injuries of others; to be slow to punish and slow to anger; to demonstrate self- restraint when provoked."

When you love someone, you will have this kind of attitude toward them. The person with this trait patiently endures suffering under injustice, abuse, and persecution.

**THE STORY OF JOSEPH IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF LOVE SUFFERS LONG.

2. LOVE IS KIND- GR- {khraste-yoo'-om- ahee}. It means "to show one's self mild; to be kind." It is the opposite of harshness. Love is patient and waits when one is mistreated. On the other hand, love is eager to spring into action to be kind. Kindness goes a long way with people, especially when there are conflicts, mistakes, and problems that need to be solved or forgiven. Kindness keeps our heads "cool" and helps us to think more clearly without the blur from fury and rage.

Romans 12:21 (NKJV)

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

3. LOVE REJOICES IN TRUTH- WHAT IS TRUTH AND WHO IS TRUTH??

**THEY ARE THE ONE AND THE SAME- JESUS CHRIST, THE WHAT IS TRUTH IS THE WORD OF GOD, THE WHO IS THE TRUTH JESUS MAKES THE STATEMENT THAT HE IS THE TRUTH:
