1 Corinthians 13:4-8a (AMP)
Love endures long and is
patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is
not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is
not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude
(unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does
not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not
self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no
account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered
wrong]. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but
rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and
everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every
person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures
everything [without weakening]. Love never fails [never fades out or
becomes obsolete or comes to an end].
It is quite
clear from these passages of scripture that Love is not of this world.
Love has no darkness in it at all. Love is spirit and truth. There is
not one ounce of worldly resemblance in Love. Love is pure and undefiled
by sin or self. It is not hard to distinguish human love from the love
of God, there is no comparison.
The scriptures above
declare that love is ever ready to believe the best...how awesome and
supernatural. It says love believes. Love never fears or doubts that
which is of God. Love is a believer of the plans and purposes of God.
Love is a believer of the righteousness of God. Love is a believer in
the power of God. Love is a believer in miracles, signs and wonders.
Love is a believer in the power of the blood of Jesus. Love believes in
mercy. Love believes in the regenerating power of the Holy Ghost in the
life of a sinner. Love believes that by Jesus stripes we are healed.
Love believes in the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. Love believes the Word
of God. Love believes when we pray according to God that He hears us and
grant the petitions that we desire. Love believes in the 1st and 2nd
resurrection. Love believes that Jesus is coming back for His church
just like He said He would. Love believes! Love believes! Love believes!
