Our Love for the World

We live in a world where “love” is understood in many different ways. The “love” that God expresses is described in God’s word, the Bible, as “Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins”. This week we look at extending God’s love to the wider world.

Scripture References: 2 Corinthians 5:11-21, John 3:16-21, 1 John 2:15-17

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.
