Faith that Works

Teaching middle schoolers how to live and practice their faith

A Bible verse for each day of the fourth week of Advent

As the Father loves me, so I also love you.  Remain in my love.
John 15:9

I drew them with human cords,
with bands of love,
I fostered them like those
who raise an infant to their cheeks;
I bent down to feed them.
Hosea 11:4

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:7

Beloved, let us love one another,for love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God.
1 John 4:7

Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm;
For Love is strong as Death.
Song of Songs 8:6

Therefore, you shall love the Lord, your God, with your whole heart, and with your whole being and with your whole strength.
Deuteronomy 6:5

This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.  No one has greater love than this,to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
John 15:12-13

Some ideas for how to use these verses during this fourth week of Advent:
~ have students write them in their Bible journals- this would also be great practice for looking up verses in the Bible.
~ use these as an opening prayer, or in between verses of O Come O Come Emmanuel for a mini prayer service.
~Ask students to say which is their favorite and why, or let them choose their own favorite verses about love.

Do you have other favorite verses or quotes about love?  Share those in the comments!

      It’s one of my favorites too! I’ve often heard this verse used to describe Saint Damien of Molokai and Saint Maximilian Kolbe, and they are two of my favorites!
