that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

John 15:9-13

  2. If you obey my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.
  3. I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be complete.
  4. My commandment is this—to love one another just as I have loved you.
  5. No one has greater love than this—that one lays down his life for his friends.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

  1. Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up.
  2. It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful.
  3. It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth.
  4. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
