The Lesson of Love: Preface

By J.R. Miller

      The Lesson of Love

      J. R. Miller,


      To learn how to love--is to learn how to live. The lesson is a long one--but it is the great business of life to master it. The Master not only taught the lesson in words--but also set it down for us in a life, His own life. To follow Christ is to practice this great lesson, learning more of it day by day, until school is out and we go home!

      "By this all men will know that you are My disciples--if you love one another." John 13:35

      "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." 1 John 4:8

      "Dear friends, since God so loved us--we also ought to love one another." 1 John 4:11

      "God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them." 1 John 4:16

      "Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians 5:2

      "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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!" 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
