Love Just as I Love

Love Just as I Love

John 13:21-38


Call to Worship: Psalm 63:1-3 (NIV)

     You, God, are my God,
              earnestly I seek you;
         I thirst for you,
              my whole being longs for you,
         in a dry and parched land
              where there is no water.

     I have seen you in the sanctuary
              and beheld your power and your glory.
     Because your love is better than life,
              my lips will glorify you.

Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a (NIV)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
