10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Sunday we continued our discussion of 1 John. Our text was 1 John 4:7-11.

“Dear friends let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”

We discussed the fact that any love that is not from God is ‘consumer based’ love. The world says that you stay in relationship as long as you get something from the relationship. But divine love requires that we love the unlovable. We love others not because of what they can do for us but because God first loved us.

We don’t need the love of others for validation because we have the love of Christ.

This Sunday we will discuss 1 John 13-21.

1) How can we know we have the love of God in us?

2) How does love expel fear?

See you in the morning.

John
