Our Love for Each Other

We have been looking at what the Bible means when it uses the word “love”. As Andrew reminded us last week: it is possibly the most misused word in our world today. Over the last two weeks we have seen the meaning of the word “love” as the Bible uses it. It is very different to how we hear and see it used around us every day. As part of God’s mob here in Narrabri it is important that we listen to what our Lord says about our love for each other. The love He shows us also gives us a better way to live in this world. He reveals where love comes from. How we can love. What stops us loving each other and what loving each other results in.

Scripture References: John 15:1-17, Philippians 3:1-11, John 17:20-26

From Series: "Love"

‘Love is love’ is such a warm and fuzzy and nice phrase. It is one of the catchphrases of our times. But what does it mean? And do we realise the inconsistency of defining a word by itself… as well as the way in which such a phrase is logically inconsistent (Is my love for ice-cream the same as my love for my wife? Is the love of Jesus the same as the love of Amnon for Tamar?)… as well as the way such a phrase works as a catch-all justification for any form/type/expression of love that I find acceptable/desirable? We need some clarity on ‘love’. And so we are spending time over the next four weeks looking at love, four ways: God’s love for us, our love for God, our love for each other (as God’s mob), and the love God’s mob has for the world.
