These 15 King James Version love scriptures KJV will help you to grow in love.
God commanded us to love, to love one another and to love him, but what is love? “And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.”( 2 John 1:6)
Love is a fruit of the spirit, and it is within the reach of anyone. More importantly, God requires love, for, without it, we cannot have a relationship with God.
When we walk in love, love toward God and brotherly love, we will have success in every area of our lives. And nothing will be impossible for us to achieve. God will enable us to climb the highest mountain and walk the deepest valley.
Love is the way to victory and the key to unlocking heaven’s best. When we walk in love, we walk in God. And when we walk in God, we will always live a prosperous life.
And with that said, here are fifteen King James Version love scriptures KJV. These 15 love verses have been an inspiring source of blessings to me, and I trust that they will be to you also.
Love Scriptures KJV
John 15:12 – KJV “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.”
What will it cost you to love? Your money, your life, your time? No, everything. Love requires everything. If it cost you your money, then give it, if it cost you time then allow it. If it cost you life, then let it be. Love is the ultimate sacrifice anyone can give, and it requires everything.
1 Corinthians 16:14 – KJV “ Let all your things be done with charity.”
John 15:13 – KJV “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Love is the greatest gift anyone could offer, and it cost God His only son Jesus to demonstrate His love to us.
Romans 13:10 – KJV “Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.”
Love makes us complete and perfect before God. When we walk in love, there is no room for fear, hate, and the likes.
Romans 5:8 – KJV “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Love is gracious, and love doesn’t attach a cost for whatever good is done. Jesus died for sinners, and He asked for nothing in return.
John 3:16 – KJV “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Love is a verb, and it denotes an action. We cannot show without first demonstrating it. And that was what Jesus did on the cross.
1 John 3:1 – KJV “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”
God’s love toward us is unconstitutional and does not matter how far deep in sin we are. God loves us, and His love covers all sins.
Luke 6:27-28 – KJV “But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.”
Love is not a respecter of persons, love will be kind to everyone. Whether enemies, friends, or whoever, love will embrace them all.
Proverbs 17:17 – KJV “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”
Love is gracious under any condition. And love does not look for an opportunity to excuse its self. But rather, love looks for opportunities to further express its self
Ephesians 4:32 – KJV “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
Love doesn’t hold on to grudges, but rather, love is quick to forgive. Love is kind and tender-hearted, and will at all times offer others an opportunity to amend their ways.
Romans 12:10 – KJV “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another.”
Love is patient, and it suffers long. Love is always affectionate, and even when provoked, love will remain kind.
Ephesians 5:2 – KJV “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savor.”
It pleases God when we walk in love. And as this verse puts it, love is a sweet-smelling savor unto God.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 – KJV Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth, not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
These qualities of love are priceless, and theses verses emphasize why. Love is everything that the average human isn’t, and it is for this exact reason why we need God’s love in our lives.
1 John 4:11 – KJV “Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.”
Before we can say that we love God, we must first love each other. If we don’t love each other, then we can’t honestly say that we love God.
John 15:9 – KJV “As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.”
Love is permanent, here Jesus encourages us to continue in God’s love. At all costs, we must endeavor to love each other. But in an evil and dreadful world, loving others might prove difficult, but God requires nothing less.
As a rule, to achieve any good thing in life, it will take a massive amount of commitment, persistence, and faith. Therefore, it will require you to wholeheartedly commit yourself to love.
At first, you may not feel so into it, but with time and practice, you will grow to become a true embodiment of love. In closing,
