The King: Love is Here

The King: Love is Here

Dec 21, 2014

Passage:1 John 4:7-12

Preacher: Jason Thomas

Series: The King is Here

Category: God's love

Summary:

We see and experience many expressions of love in our life. Yet, so often what we experience is a feeling that fades with the passing of time, is difficult to express for those we find hard to love, or is expressed for the wrong reasons. Our human love falls short for many reasons. We learn in 1 John that love does not begin with us. True love, the Agape unconditional love, begins with God. It is a deep affection that is pure in motive, completely devoted, sacrificial, not dependent on circumstances, never fades, and does not keep score. When Jesus came into our world, he brought with him this love, which the world had never experienced before. As we read in 1 John 4:7 - 12, we experience this special love through faith in Jesus. In him, God demonstrated this love for each one of us. He loved us first, even before we ever showed love to him. May we be refreshed and overwhelmed by this love and let it overflow into the lives of others.
