In 1 Corinthians 13 verses 1-3 Paul focuses on the emptiness produced when love is absent. in verses 4-7 we find the most comprehensive biblical description of the fullness of love. Paul shines love through a prism and we see 15 of its colors and hues, the spectrum of love. Each ray gives a facet, a property, of agape love. They do not focus on what love is so much as on what love does and does not do. “Agape'” love is active, not abstract or passive, and is only truly manifested when it leads us into action (1 John 3:18). Ask yourself is you are manifesting these characteristics to others in your life.
