Class Outline:


The Greatest of These is Love
But now faith, hope, love, abide (in the sphere of) these three; but the greatest of these is (unconditional) love.
For they (unbelievers) exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature (Satan or Self) rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For the flesh (the Old Self and its sin nature) sets its desire against (God) the (Holy) Spirit, and (God) the (Holy) Spirit (sets Himself) against the flesh (the Old Self and its sin nature); for these are in opposition to one another…
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood (souls and sin natures), but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?
I am the Lord, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me;//that men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun that there is no one besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other,//The One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the Lord who does all these.
For if (1) one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached (and they do)…
So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If (3) you continue in My word (may be you will and maybe you won’t…you have a choice), then you are truly disciples of Mine;//and you will know the
truth, and the truth will make you free.”
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of (God) the Father and (God) the Son and (God) the Holy Spirit,//teaching them to observe all that I commanded (request of) you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.
For there is no partiality with God.
The Lord’s lovingkindnesses (graciousnesses) indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail.//They are new every morning…
For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
…in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you (who are) in (union with) Christ Jesus.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.//Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
In Your Presence 
When I Think About Home
“Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O Lord, and You exalt Yourself 
as head over all.”
“Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all, and in Your hand is power and might; and it lies in Your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone.”
“Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name.”
“The eternal God is a dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms…”
Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this (well) water will thirst again…”
“…but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”
But now faith, hope, love, abide (in the sphere of) these three; but the greatest of these is (unconditional) love.
The one who does not love (unconditionally) does not know God, for God is (unconditional) love.
But now faith, hope, love, abide(in the sphere of) these three; but the greatest of these is (unconditional) love.
As Jesus went on from there, He saw a man called Matthew, sitting in the tax collector’s booth; and He said to him, “Follow Me!” And he got up and followed Him.
Then it happened that as Jesus was reclining at the table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners (prostitutes) came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples.
When the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, “Why is your Teacher eating with the tax collectors and sinners (prostitutes)?”
But when Jesus heard this, He said, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick.”
“But go and learn what this means: ‘I DESIRE COMPASSION, AND NOT SACRIFICE,’ for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.”
For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
But now faith, hope, love, abide (in the sphere of) these three; but the greatest of these is (unconditional) love.
