Our world today has a lot of questions about love, particularly in its music. Some will tell you that “all you need is love,” or that they are everything they are “because you loved me.” But others argue that “Love stinks” or “love hurts,” and wonder ‘where is the love?”
Why does love seem to affect people differently? Some people are “crazy in love,” while others try their best to give you the “best of my love.” Some people are so dedicated that they’ll claim “wild horses” couldn’t drag them away from their love. Even after someone has hurt them so deeply that they keep “bleeding love,” they encourage their love that “you’re still the one.” Others don’t have that dedication, and are left wondering, “will you still love me tomorrow”?
Some people think that we have one true love that we are waiting for “all my life,” and when you find them you can say “I knew I loved you before I met you.” Others feel that “love is a battlefield” of uncertainty that they need to wade through.
Eventually, most conclude that a “love story” is just a fantasy, that doesn’t line up with real life. In their honest moments, they admit, “I want to know what love is,” but they don’t. They’re left asking, “what is love?”
Fortunately, we have the answers to all of those questions in Jesus Christ. Whatever your experience with love, there is One person who is the source of all love. In fact, some of His closest friends have said of Him that He is love.
As we study the letter of 1st John over the next few months, we will discover what love is, where love is, who love is, and how love has reached out to us in the person of Jesus Christ. God demonstrated His love for us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Our world has a lot of questions about love, but God has the answers. Please join us on Sunday mornings at 11am as we study those answers together. In our morning worship service, you will find people demonstrating the love of God, praising the love of God, serving and giving in gratitude for the love of God, and learning about the love of God through the preaching of His Word. Please join us this Sunday, as we look to Jesus and confess: This is Love.
