LEARNING TO LOVE THE OTHER (6.13.21)
Pastor Linda Ruby / Minister of Music: Carol Coles
Duet by: Nancy Gelzheiser and Chris Skowronski
1 John 4:7, 16-21
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. So, we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.
