    Love edifies others in the word of God (Eph 4:16); this is how we are to serve one another (Gal 5:13); we can do this after we have waited on the Spirit for this righteous and loving ability (Gal 5:5-6) Love speaks the truth so that others may grow up. (Eph 4:15) God wants our love to abound more and more in (godly) knowledge and in all (righteous) judgment (Phil 1:9). Let us follow after this love (1Tim 6:11); Love provokes others to do this good work (Heb 10:24); Let this brotherly/sisterly love continue (Heb 13:1) Therefore love has nothing to do with giving stuff away. (1Cor 13:1-2) For we know nothing about love unless we know that love edifies others in the knowledge and wisdom of God. (Eph 4:16) This is the one mind we are to have so that the God of love and peace shall be with us. (2Cor 13:11) This is how we can love our neighbor as ourselves. (Gal 5:14) We are to know those who are among us who labor in the word of God, so that we can esteem them very highly in love for this gracious work. This is how we can be at peace among ourselves. (1Thess 5:12-13) This is how we can be holy ( meaning, understanding, see Prov 9:10) and without blame before Him (God); and rooted and grounded in love. (Eph 1:4, 3:17) Love can rejoice in this truth that reveals grace. (1Cor 13:6, Col 1:6) If there is to be any fellowship of the Spirit, and comfort of love let us be like minded, and of one accord so that we could experience this same love. (Phil 2:1-2) This is how we show our love to the saints, by writing these things down, so that others may be edified and built up. (Col 1:4, 1 Tim 3:14, 1 Cor 4:14, 2Cor 2:4, Est 9:30) It’s all about increasing and abounding in this love, one towards another, and towards all men. (1Thes 3:12) Let us ASK the Lord to direct our hearts into this love of God; without which we will have a disorderly walk which is not what we want to receive. (2Thess 3:5-6) Let us ASK of God to purify our souls, so that we could obey this truth through the power of the Spirit so that we could have sincere love for our brethren, within a (made)pure heart(1Pet 1:22); because we know that we are born again by the word of God. (1Pet 1:23) Let grace be with all those who (are willing) to love our Lord Jesus Christ within this sincerity. Amen. (Eph 6:24)

    I’m not sure where you are going with this Z, but you left out John 15:13

    Do you have any positive comments about this study?
    My whole point is to build up and edify other belivers, using the scriptures, which I stated.
