More Love

1 John 4:7-21

John obviously felt quite strongly about God's love and us loving one another because he hits the whole topic of love again--full force--in 1 John 4. As I read, the fact that God's love for us is a given and unconditional came across loud and clear. (Thank you, God!) But as I shifted my thinking over to my love, the realization hit me that yes, while I do love others, there are still plenty of times where my love is conditional.

1 John 4: 11 says: "Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another."

Think about a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the equivalent of loving like God. Where would you say you land on this scale when it comes to loving others? Why? What can you do to move further up the scale towards that 10? Tami W.

P.S. If you're interested in the Book of Revelation, then you'll want to listen to Back to the Bible starting next week as we begin an in-depth radio series on Revelation.
