Jesus in 1 Corinthians 13

As part of my sermon yesterday, I inserted Jesus into the descriptions of love in 1 Corinthians 13. It’s very fitting. In Christ is all the fulness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2:9), and God is love (1 John 4:). Jesus was born into this world to show us what God is like; the fullness and completeness of love. Read through the attributes of love (NKJV) with Jesus inserted for love and see how appropriate it is.

  1. Jesus suffers long
  2. Jesus is kind
  3. Jesus does not envy
  4. Jesus does not parade itself
  5. Jesus is not puffed up
  6. Jesus does not behave rudely
  7. Jesus does not seek its own
  8. Jesus is not provoked
  9. Jesus thinks no evil
  10. Jesus does not rejoice in iniquity
  11. Jesus rejoices in the truth
  12. Jesus bears all things
  13. Jesus believes all things
  14. Jesus hopes all things
  15. Jesus endures all things
  16. Jesus never fails
