The Highest Christian Virtue

When we become believers our priorities are changed. Our inner person desires to be more like Christ–in every aspect of life. The love of God, which is the highest of all Christian virtues, takes up residence in our heart. This type of love is a generous, unselfish, sacrificing type of love. It is a love that is given even if it is undeserved, misunderstood, rejected, trampled on, and not returned.

“Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” –Romans 5:5 (NKJV)

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” –Romans 5:8 (NKJV)

“But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?” –1 John 3:17 (NKJV)
