Sunday Preview for May 20, 2018
This Sunday’s passage, 1 John 4:7-12, tells us that “God is love.” Note that it doesn’t say that “love is God,” which would mean that our feelings were divine, or at least defined what God was like. The order is important. God is a person, not an emotion, and God – who he is and what he does – defines what true love really is. The God who is love binds himself to people, teaches them how to live, sacrifices himself for them, and calls them to do the same for others.
Come to worship this Sunday and meet with the God who is love – who loves you and the others gathered with you, and who will empower you to love truly, by the Spirit whom he gives!
