This coming Lord’s Day (11/22 to be precise), I hope to be preaching from 1 John 4:7-12. This passage repeatedly (see vv.7, 11 and 12) calls us to love one another because God is love. Here is a great action step to take as you think about this passage from Steve Lawson:
“Pause for a moment and take a hard look at your life.
Behind your claim to be a Christian…
Do you posses a genuine love for other people?
Do you really?
Are you a kind and forgiving person?
Do you consider the interests of others more important than your own?
Do you see yourself reaching out to people who are hard to love?”
(from Absolutely Sure, p.97).
I hope you come eager to hear God’s Word this Sunday.
