Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 13:6


13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity - Yea, weeps at either the sin or folly of even an enemy; takes no pleasure in hearing or in repeating it, but desires it may be forgotten for ever. But rejoiceth in the truth - Bringing forth its proper fruit, holiness of heart and life. Good in general is its glory and joy, wherever diffused in all the world.

1Co 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity. Instead of rejoicing, is filled with sadness by wrong doing of any kind, but does rejoiceth in the truth, or, as in the Revised Version, "with the truth" in its triumphs.

    I love that verse I am still learning about being a child of God and making things right for my family and myself. It has not been easy but very humbling. My family is everything to me and with the guidence of God myself and my family will be whole. And I will be good enough for the kingdom. I haven't been honest and very loving in times of need. I pray for my family and beg for forgiveness.

    I have always desired to attain this perfect love but at times it seems almost insurmountable.I do know the difference between carnal love and divine love .When I talk to others about attaining this, most think that is impossible to achieve.

    To Barbara's when Jesus speaks on when I was a child I act like a child .when I became a man I put away childless things he is not telling us to forget our childhood he is telling us we are to act like a adult now because we are no longer childern so we must think and act like adults when we become a adult we cannot return to a child once we are grown up.thats one of the problem in the world now some people still want to have a child like mind when they are grown they want to be a child they want mom and dad to take care of them all their life Jesus want us to stand up be a grown person when we become of age we can not stay in a child like mine we must be responsible for ourselves in life go school get a Job and live life as a adult now this is what Jesus want us to do grow up and be a adult do adult things not act like a child because we are no longer childern.we can not go backward but forward its a good thing to remember our childhood it has a lot to do with our adulthood and how we turn out as adults be it good or bad Amen
