Love.

"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us."  I John 4:7-12
Our Bible Fellowship leader, Greg, shared this scripture passage with us this morning in class, and it resonated with me.  I shared a few weeks ago about how God has been convicting me about how I need to love other people more, and our pastor is in the midst of a series on evangelism (at the heart of which is love), and then Greg read this passage today.  It's also been a theme in my own personal Bible reading.  Sometimes God isn't so subtle when trying to teach a lesson...

  1. I love when God just tells us things we need to hear when we least expect it :)
