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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
