Love Matters – 1 John 4:7-12, 17-21, 1 John 3:1a
Our ability to love comes from the _____________________ that we are loved.
“Do not waste time bothering whether you “love” your neighbor. Act as if you did. As soon as we do this, we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone you will presently come to love him.” – C.S. Lewis
