Four Truths About Love

(Listen to the entire talk about loving husbands and children here:

Titus 2:4 says, “and so teach the younger women to love their husbands and children.” Lauren teaches 4 truths about love laying a foundation for practical ways women can love their husbands and children.

Four Truths about Love

  1. Love includes affection but is more than a feeling (love is a choice).

    • Love includes feelings of affection and desire, but we know it’s more than a feeling, because sometimes we don’t feel like being loving, but that doesn’t mean the Word of God changed.

    • John 15:12

  2. Love is an action commanded by God (that testifies to the world about Him).

    • Love is not only a choice we make but an action and this action worships God and testifies about Him.

    • John 13:34-35

    • 1 John 3:16-18

  3. Love is a commitment to the truth of God.

    • The world has a lot of rules about love that can be deceiving. The world wants you to love in a certain way that is contrary to true love found in Scripture – and then we are labeled as unloving.

    • The Noetic Effect of sin is referring to sins effect on the mind.

      The Greek word for Mind is nous therefor noetic deals with the mind. (Romans 1)

    • Sin has an effect on the mind of mankind and it distorts how we define and view love. That is why it is so important that we stay committed to the Truth of God and what God defines as love.

  4. Love is hard to do sometimes, but we can love because Christ loved us.

    • Love is such a joy when that affection is there, but sometimes love is a duty done out of worship for Christ.

    • We can love because Christ loved us first and has given us a new heart.

    • Romans 5:8

    • 2 Corinthians 5:14


Define all the words that describe love in 1 Corinthians 13.

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
