Love Is

1Corinthians 13

Love IS . . .

The verses aren't about rules or reasons.

They are descriptions 

Love Is  . . .

meeting us at the threshold is 

patience . . . 

preceding all others, the genesis of qualities, the captain that 

the others follow . . .

patience, the arbor that kindness, humility, and forgiveness  must pass through . . .

"the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect, complete, lacking nothing." James 1:3-4

When patience has its perfect work ... kindness, humility, and forgiveness are released from a well of living water within . . . an uncapped well that becomes a fountain and all who drink from it are refreshed. 

Patience . . . the benevolence of God. 

God is LOVE and LOVE is PATIENT and He is faithful to give us the fruit of Spirit . . . patience.
