Check your Christian vital signs by reading the entire chapter of Love, 1Corinthians 13:1-13. It is a very challenging chapter in the Word of God. It is the core of christian character and integrity. I've challenged myself to read this chapter often, it will make a true follower of Christ out of Me! Christ Himself said that we would be known by our love for one another. (John 13:35)
"Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self- seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything without weakening."
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (Amp)
