what does the book of revelations mean

Bible studies have never been this much fun! The Love Bible Study for Youth helps you explore the Bible with your youth group in a way that grabs their attention, helps them think and analyze, and teaches them how to apply God’s Word to their lives. These lessons will bring all ages up close and personal with God’s Word through thought-provoking questions, activities, and other fun learning activities.

Yesterday, we took a look at what the Bible says about the fruit of the Spirit. And today, we’re going to look at the first fruit in the list, love.

In this Bible study for youth, we’ll look at what the Bible has to say about love – especially God’s love for us. You’ll learn to apply these truths in your everyday life, and gain a better understanding of who you are and how you fit into God’s great plan.

The Christian view of love is not what we see in the movies. It’s not merely about a feeling or an emotion or a relationship. Nor is love something that people fall into.

Love in the Bible is much more than that. But it’s also important to keep in mind that love is not simply the act of giving to a charity, either. Paul makes this clear when he says that if he were to give away all that he had, and yet he didn’t have love, something’s still missing (1 Cor 13:3).

Now, don’t get me wrong. Charity is a good thing, and I’m sure that Paul believed that too. But there’s something more to love than just helping out those in need for the sake of doing so.

Perhaps, it may be helpful to look at how Paul describes love in order grasp the biblical understanding of it:

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (ESV)
