John 13:34

34 A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another; as I loved you, that ye also love one another.

Romans 3:3

3 For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make void the faithfulness of God?

2 Corinthians 1:1-24

1 PAUL, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy the brother, to the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints who are in all Achaia: 2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all consolation; 4 who consoles us in all our affliction, that we may be able to console those who are in any affliction, by the consolation wherewith we ourselves are consoled by God. 5 Because, as the sufferings of Christ abound toward us, so through Christ abounds also our consolation. 6 But whether we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective in the endurance of the same sufferings which we also suffer; or whether we are consoled, it is for your consolation and salvation. 7 And our hope of you is steadfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so are ye also of the consolation. 8 For we would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of our affliction which befell us in Asia, that we were exceedingly oppressed, above our strength, so that we despaired even of life. 9 Yea, we ourselves had in ourselves the sentence of death, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead; 10 who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver; in whom is our hope that he will still deliver; 11 ye also helping together on our behalf by your supplication, that for the mercy bestowed on us through many persons, thanks may be given by many on our behalf. 12 For our glorying is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not in fleshly wisdom, but in the grace of God, did we deport ourselves in the world, and more abundantly toward you. 13 For we write no other things to you, than what ye read or even acknowledge, and I trust ye will acknowledge even to the end; 14 as also ye did acknowledge us in part, that we are your glorying, even as ye also are ours in the day of the Lord Jesus. 15 And in this confidence I was desirous to come to you before, that ye might have a second benefit; 16 and to pass by you into Macedonia, and from Macedonia to come again to you, and by you to be brought on my way to Judea. 17 When therefore I purposed this, did I act with levity? Or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be the yea, yea, and the nay, nay? 18 But God is faithful, our word to you is not yea and nay. 19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, by me and Silvanus and Timothy, was not made yea and nay, but has been made yea in him. 20 For however many are the promises of God, in him is the yea, and in him the Amen, to the glory of God through us. 21 Now he who establishes us with you in Christ, and anointed us, is God; 22 he who also sealed us, and gave the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. 23 But I invoke God for a witness upon my soul, that to spare you I came not yet to Corinth. 24 Not that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy; for in faith ye stand fast.

John 15:13

13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:7

7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever ye will, and it shall be done to you.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 THOUGH I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods in food, and though I give up my body that I may be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love suffers long, is kind; love envies not; love vaunts not itself, is not puffed up, 5 does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not its own, is not easily provoked, imputes no evil; 6 rejoices not at unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but whether there are prophesyings, they will be done away; whether tongues, they will cease; whether knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child, I reasoned as a child; but now that I am become a man, I have done away the things of the child. 12 For we see now in a mirror, obscurely; but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then I shall know fully, even as I also am fully known. 13 And now remain faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love.

Galatians 2:20

20 I have been crucified with Christ; and no longer do I live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Matthew 5:44

44 But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you;

John 15:9-17

9 As the Father loved me, I also loved you; abide in my love. 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and your joy be made full. 12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatever I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants; because the servant knows not what his lord does. But I have called you friends because all things that I heard from my Father I made known to you. 16 Ye did not choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you that ye may go and bear fruit, and that your fruit may remain; that whatever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

4 Love suffers long, is kind; love envies not; love vaunts not itself, is not puffed up, 5 does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not its own, is not easily provoked, imputes no evil; 6 rejoices not at unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but whether there are prophesyings, they will be done away; whether tongues, they will cease; whether knowledge, it will be done away.

1 Corinthians 13:13

13 And now remain faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
