You Can't Fake Love

A follower of Jesus is one who knows the depth of God’s love and the sacrifice that He paid to fully demonstrate that love. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us! This love calls for a response and the way in which we are to love God in return is to sacrificially love others, especially those who also claim to be children of God. It is a quality of love that can’t be faked.

Scripture References: 1 John 4:7-5-2

From Series: "Authentic Jesus"

In an age when opinions fly at us unrestrained, John gives us the unchanging gift of truth. When science and philosophy and your social circles say you can’t really know God, John says, yes you can. Dear child, he writes, I’ve touched Him. Where we’ve not only settled for living in the gray, but have formed our identity in it, John points us to light and dark – you’re walking in one or the other. And perhaps most importantly, at a time when the word love means just about anything under the sun, and therefore almost nothing, John tells us “this is what loves is…” And then he shows us the authentic Jesus.
