Love Never Fails

April 14, 2019 • Jumaine Jones

Agape leaves room for growth and grace.

Love Rejoices With Truth

April 7, 2019 • Jumaine Jones

Agape does not rejoice in someone else’s misfortune, even if it’s for it’s own benefit. It desires to see righteousness prevail.

Love is Not Easily Angered

March 31, 2019 • Shala Graham

Agape does not become easily angered. It does not blow a fuse. When we become angry, we make decisions we regret later and hurt the ones we love.

Love Is Not Selfish

March 24, 2019 • Dafnette Jones

Agape is not only concerned about it’s own needs, but the needs of others.

Love Forgives

March 17, 2019 • Jumaine Jones

Agape does not keep a record of wrongs, but forgives others. God wants us to forgive others in the same manner Christ has forgiven us.

Love Is Not Rude

March 10, 2019 • Dafnette Jones

Agape is considerate of the way it treats others. God doesn’t want us to treat others the way we feel they should be treated, but the way we would want to be treated.

Love Is Not Arrogant

March 3, 2019 • Shala Graham

Pride and arrogance can bring a wedge in our friendships. Agape requires humility, for which God gives abundant grace.

Love Is Not Jealous

February 24, 2019 • Jumaine Jones

Agape does not envy others in relationships. Unfortunately, we tend to envy those closest to us. Moses experienced jealousy from his sister Miriam and his leadership partner, Aaron.

Love Is Patient

February 17, 2019 • Jumaine Jones

Love is reflected in being patient and kind towards others. Patient is passive while kindness is active. Often when we are impatient, we also tend to be unkind. Jesus models this by being patient with us and displaying lovingkindness. We also must be patient and kind towards others.

Growing In Love

February 10, 2019 • Jumaine Jones

The Greek word for love in 1 Corinthians is Agape. God desires that we grow in agape. It is the main component of spiritual growth and experiencing authentic relationships. Our gifts, talents, success, and acquisitions are worthless if we don’t possess love.
