Home Church Video ~ “Love is…” ~ Part 3 ~ “The Patience and Kindness of Love”

Our agape-love adventure[1] leads us to consider the various facets of this love in order to fine-tune how we, “Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts”.[2] 

Agape-love is what makes the church go round, so to speak. Spiritual gifts is how agape-love ministers to one another in order to maximize our growth and maturity in Christ. 

Now that we have a sense of what agape-love is in itself (goodwill arising from a personal moral good rather than attraction),[3] and how necessary it is that we have this agape-love in everything we do,[4] the first facets of agape-love are described as patience and kindness.

Join our home church as we explore the relational dynamic of the Triune God’s patience and kindness with us that fills us with patience and kindness with one another.
