Our series throughout the month of February has focused on love: God’s love for us, loving ourselves as the precious creation of God, loving those closest to us (family), loving those around us (neighbors and enemies). This week is the culmination of the series, emphasizing that it is the role of Christians, Christian parents, churches, and Christian schools, to pour love into children and equip them to demonstrate the love of God to the world. Our guest preacher is Rev. Dr. Roy Peterson from Concordia University Wisconsin.
Taylor Swift sings, “Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.” There is enough hatred (or at least animosity, criticism, negativity) to go around. What if we countered that, or even overcame that, with love?
There is a ripple effect. When you know how much God loves you, when that sinks into the core of your being, love for God spills back out of you and then onto the people around you. That usually affects those closest to you at first. Who is feeling the ripple effect in your life?
In The Princess Bride Westley wheezed that there is one thing to live for: true love. But what is love? People try to find it, define it, hold on to it, lament it. Only in God do we find the true meaning and perfect expression of love.
