21 of the Most Powerful Scripture Passages on Love

The Bible has some very profound things to say about love, particularly because love is one of the foundations of our faith. We often seek love in all the wrong places, but we will never be truly satisfied until we realize the love Christ had for us. We've picked out some key verses from most powerful scripture passages on love so you can deeper understand this important Biblical principle.

2. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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."

3. Romans 12:9
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
