Luke 10:25-28 The all important question; the simple answer − love

Matthew 5:34 and 35
Jesus understood God’s top priority and taught accordingly.

Love is based upon obedience to the Scriptures and should not be confused with human love, which is conditioned upon the relationship held with others.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3
The point is not to cast a disparaging view on these manifestations, but to magnify dynamically the importance of utilizing all manifestations with God’s love.

If without love we are nothing, then with love we are something.

1John 4:8
love is not an emotion or a feeling; rather, it is a deliberate choice to obey God’s Word above our own thoughts, feelings, emotions, or desires. God Himself is the standard of this love.

1Corinthians 13:4-8
All the “not” behavior comes to us naturally without any disciplined effort. To love God’s way is to be like God and is supernatural.

1Peter 3:20; Exodus 34:6; 2Peter 3:9 and 10
God is longsuffering.

Ephesians 4:1-3; 1Thessalonians 5:14 and 15; James 5:7-9
- We are to be like God and have longsuffering with our brothers.

Nehemiah 9:17; Romans 2:4
God’s kindness leads us to repentance

Titus 3:3-5; Ephesians 4:31 and 32
We are to be Godlike with kindness.

1Corinthains 13:7; 1Peter 4:8
“Bears all things” means to cover over in silence.

Galatians 5:13-17
Through love serve one another.

1Corinthains 13:8-13
The greatest of these is love.
