  2. 2. TEN WAYS TO RECOGNIZE TRUE LOVE Dr.Jobe Martin Biblical Discipleship Ministries www.biblicaldiscipleship.org
  3. 3. Luke 2:52: “And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom, and stature, and in favor with God and men. <ul><li>1) True love involves an enthusiastic response to the total self of the one who is loved. </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t “fall in love” you “wait for love.” </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t fall in love with a body—you learn to love a person (marry a body and it will grow old and wrinkled---it is the character wrapped up in the body that is important.) </li></ul>
  4. 4. 2) True love has a quality of self-giving. <ul><li>Your strongest desire is to enrich the loved one, not to exploit. </li></ul><ul><li>If you enter marriage with your strongest desire to completely satisfy your mate and vice-versa, and you are both sold out to satisfying the Lord Jesus, then you have the ingredients for a successful Christian marriage=total commitment to God and each other. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 3) True Love always embraces real responsibility to the one loved. <ul><li>What qualities are you looking for in another person? </li></ul><ul><li>What qualities do you most admire? How many of these qualities are true of you? </li></ul>
  6. 6. 4) True love is marked by real joy in the presence of the one loved. <ul><li>It does not irritate you when they are around. </li></ul><ul><li>There is true sorrow or loneliness when separated. </li></ul>
  7. 7. 5) True love involves mutual enjoyment of each others company <ul><li>The physical expression is not constantly necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>There should be more to share than just a body. </li></ul><ul><li>If you would take all the physical expression out of your relationship, what would you have left? </li></ul>
  8. 8. 6) True love tends to be protective of the one loved. <ul><li>7) True love tends to build each other up. </li></ul><ul><li>8) True love has a feeling of belongingness, you want to share all. </li></ul><ul><li>9) True love generates feelings of pleasure as well as reverence. </li></ul><ul><li>10) True love always keeps growing and maturing. </li></ul><ul><li>I Corinthians 13 </li></ul>
  9. 9. COMMITMENT TO COMMUNICATION <ul><li>TWO KEYS: </li></ul><ul><li>1) The key to love opens the door to communication in an active sense. I Corinthians 13:4-7 </li></ul><ul><li>The key of blessing opens the door to communication in a reactive sense. I Peter 3:9 </li></ul>
  10. 10. Explanation of Biblical Love <ul><li>1) Love suffers long = the kind of love that waits and prays for the reformation of your mate rather than striking out in resentment at his or her conduct. </li></ul><ul><li>2) Love is kind = it responds with a blessing when insulted and seizes on opportunities to demonstrate tenderness. </li></ul><ul><li>3) Love envies not = no competitive spirit between loved ones. </li></ul>
  11. 11. 4) Love vaunts not itself = never brag about your strength to magnify your mate’s weaknesses. <ul><li>5) Love is not proud = no superspirituality. </li></ul><ul><li>6) Love does not behave unseemly = love has good manners. </li></ul><ul><li>7) Love is not selfish = it always seeks the best interests of the other. </li></ul><ul><li>8) Love is not easily provoked = a weakness or offense in your loved one should not cause you to be bitter or angry, if it does, you are not loving. </li></ul>
  12. 12. 9) Love thinks no evil = cast all your mate’s offenses into the sea and put up a “no-fishing” sign. Get rid of your mental filing system.
