Big Idea: Community is strengthened when our attitudes and actions are grounded in love.
I. The Priority of Love (v. 9)
A. How do we best live in community with each other and the world around us? It starts with genuine love. This kind of (Agape) love is not some nebulous, abstract concept that is often manipulated to suit one’s preferences, but is an action rooted in God’s nature and fully revealed in Christ and His Word. For the Christian, love is not an option, but a way of life.
B. The priority of love is seen in:
1. It’s call (v. 9; cf. Mk. 12:28-31).
2. It’s character (v. 9) – Sincere, without hypocrisy.
3. It’s consistency (cf. 1 Cor. 13:8).
4. It’s conduct (cf. 1 Cor. 13:4-7).
II. The Practice of Love (vv. 10-21)
A. Many have waxed philosophically and poetically about love, but at its core, Biblical love is best modeled by Christ and seen in action. Genuine love chooses to focus on the needs and well-being of the one loved. This attribute is important because it binds the church together in unity and serves as an example to the world around us (cf. Col. 3:12-14).
B. We see love in practice when we:
A. With conviction (vv. 9-10).
B. With commitment (vv. 11-12).
C. With forgiveness (vv. 15; 17-21).
