Pastor Donald’s message came from I John 4:7-19 entitled “True Love”. The world today is seeking love in all the wrong places and ways. Love is a strong powerful emotion unlike any other we experience. Love is hard to define but once you have experienced it you never forget the feeling. TRUE love is found only by and in those who abide in God. The Bible tells us God is love. It is one of His attributes such as patience and goodness.
God’s love is perfected in us when His love is experienced in and through us. We exercise and strengthen our love of the unseen (God) by showing love to the seen (others). The strongest proof of the reality of God in the world is the love of God displayed in His people.
How did God prove His love for us? He sent His only Son to suffer the punishment we deserved for our sin. The most powerful force in the universe is God’s love! No love is greater!
You cannot know the true love of God until you first receive it. “We love Him because He first loved us.”
