1 John is a letter written to a Christian community facing pressure from false teachers outside the community--pressure that threatened the internal unity of the fellowship of believers. In response to these challenges, John writes a letter that's all about love.
It's not always easy to live a Christian life. Challenges to Christian living and loving relationships come at us every day. As we explore what 1 John means for us today, we can remember three things:
1. The defining characteristic of God is LOVE.
2. The best way to show our LOVE for God is to LOVE one another.
3. LOVE finds its ultimate definition in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
We'll be exploring what Christian LOVE looks like at HERITAGE throughout April and into May. We'd love it if you'd join us. We worship each Sunday at 11.
