What Does God’s Love Look Like Part 2

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God” (I John 4:7).
John tells us that love is from God and those who love know God. We are to love one another. What does godly love look like? We are going to go to I Corinthians 13:4-8a and look at the characteristics of love.

There were some who received him but the great masses of people rejected him, scorned him, falsely accused him and treated him in a shameful manner. Then one day he was led from Gethsemane to be tried, condemned and crucified. The tomb could not hold him, he arose from the grave to live forevermore as our mediator and redeemer (Heb. 7:25, 1 Tim. 2:5). Because he lives, we can face tomorrow with no fear.
