Christian Love

During our Sunday afternoon service I shared several (36!) passages of Scripture from the NT that deal with the subject of “Christian Love.” I read many of them as an introduction to a series on this subject that we’ll look at over the next couple of weeks.

I thought I’d list those 36 passages again, giving the text of two that I mentioned were especially important for this series. They call us to grow more and more in our love for Christ and each other. I don’t have any feeling that we’re deficient in this area, but we must continue to show and grow in our love.
