More Than a Feeling: The Power of Biblical Love

A Tangible Love

Tim Fox | 1 John 3:16-20, 4:7-12, 20-21 | 2/27/2011

Believers are both enabled and commanded to love one another with the special gospel-love that God first had for us - a love marked by self-sacrifice and actually bringing good to others, even if they are undeserving or will never pay us back.

Loving God

Al Streder | 1 John 5:1-3, 2:5-6 | 2/20/2011

The question “How do we love God?” might seem like a softball question that garners a huffy response, “Of course, I love God!”  But how is love for God manifested in your life?  At one extreme, it might be described in subjective and vague or syrupy language.  At the other extreme, one might proudly list myriad things done on the Lord’s behalf.  On Sunday, we’ll explore how we can grow in our love for God and how it can be evident in our lives. 

God's Love For Us

Tim Theule | 1 John 4:9-10, 3:1-3 | 2/13/2011

When we’re in the midst of trials and hardships, we all ask the question, “Does God love me?”   John says the love of God for us is indisputable and beyond question.  We just need to look in one direction to know it . . .

God is Love

Tim Theule | 1 John 4:15-19 | 2/6/2011

God is love. We adore that phrase and we quote it often, but what does that mean and what does that mean for us?
