1. What does loving the family look like?
Acts 4:34-35 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

The church needs to love each other and then collectively reach out in love to those outside the body. Let us, together. Share the great love of God with those so desperately in need.
Psalms 126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
Let’s learn to reach out with hearts of compassion.
5. THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL
1 John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
God’s unconditional love is the greatest love ever known to man. Let’s learn to rejoice in the fact that….
GOD LOVES US SO MUCH THAT HE GAVE.
