This past Sunday we kicked off our new series "Love."
The main verse for this month is John 13:35-- Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the
same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize
that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.
Somewhere along the line we began to equate spiritual maturity and sharing our faith with simply head knowledge. I think we came to make knowledge of Scripture, busy Christian activity and Christian apparel a sign of being a follower of Christ because it is simply easier.
Loving others and working at become better at loving like Jesus is hard work. It definitely isn't for the faint of heart. However, Jesus said that love is the proof or evidence that we are his followers. So according to Jesus' definition, can others tell we are His followers?
#1--How much love is currently flowing in your life?
#2--Does your knowledge of scripture match the amount of love?
#3--Grow in love this week. Read & pray 1 John 7-11 this week.
