From the Lesson-Sermon, "Love," July 27 - August 2, 2015

Golden Text | I John 4:8 God is
. . . God is love.

Responsive Reading |  I Corinthians 13:1, 2, 4–13
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but
have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all
mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith,
so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does
not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked,
thinks no evil;

6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,
endures all things.

8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they
will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether
there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which
is in part will be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as
a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man,
I put away childish things.

12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face.
Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also
am known.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the
greatest of these is love.
