The Measure of True Spirituality

Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.  Ephesians 4:15

Gifts without grace are nothing. 

Agape love is a totally unselfish love that comes only from God

Gifts have no spiritual effect on the life of the church if there is no love

A deadly enemy of Christianity is phony love.

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Romans 12:9 

You cannot truly love other people until you first love God.

Love must be practical! 

I put LOVE into practice in my life.                        

Am I growing in love?

  • Am I easier to live with now than I was a year ago?         
  • Am I more compassionate?
  • Am I more patient today? 

If we do not deal with the negatives in our lives, the love of God will not show through us.

Love covers everything! 

Love is ready to believe anything until it knows it is wrong

If someone sincerely wants another chance, love makes that happen.

Love is the character of Christ and it needs to be a part of my character as a follower of Jesus Christ.

Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 1 John 4:7-8
