Spread the Love!

We love because he first loved us.

1 John 4:19

Why it is that we’re capable of love?

If we’re just animals, surviving by instinct and wit, love seems unnecessary…and the idea of sacrificial love seems pretty much an impossibility!

Yet we love. And the Bible tells us why…we love because he first loved us (1 John 4:19)

First off, we’re made by God in his own image…we all reflect something about God to the world around us even if we don’t realise it. Every time you show love, you show off the signature of the Artist who designed you.

And God’s love for us awakens and enables our love for Him…and in this love, our relationship with God comes alive and thrives. Our love for God motivates our obedience to his command and to his voice, it draws us into an ever-deepening relationship with him, and it helps us to recognise His love.

On the cross, we saw love…in the stories of Jesus in the gospels, we see love.

When we see God show up today in both small and big miraculous moments, we see love.

Every time we see the chains of addiction broken, and the gentle work of the Spirit forming us more into Christ’s image, we see love.

When we witness the church in action, being the hands and feet of Jesus to a hungry and thirsty world, we see love on display.

Let's do whatever we need to do to keep receiving God’s love, and in fact this Sunday we’re reminding ourselves that His Love is Everywhere…let’s spread a little more of it and let’s keep giving it away! Before and after the service we’ll have a pop-up shop with simple but beautiful products for sale…each product is designed by one of our own (thanks Nanda!) and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to people in need to spread the message to them that Love is Everywhere. Bring some cash, choose some goodies, and either keep them for yourself or give them away as gifts…there’s no better time of year to spread the message that Love is Everywhere than at Easter!

Also, this Sunday our Kids are celebrating God’s love and faithfulness to them over this term with a Praise Party! Be prepared to hear the uplifting sounds of fun and laughter next door!
