The Sacrificial Love of God

May 6, 2018

Matt Pearson · 1 John 4:7-11

We are immersed in a culture that thinks and feels with its eyes, and often the cultural definition of love is something that feels right in the moment but can’t be sustained or enjoyed in the long run. God demonstrated the ultimate example of love in the sacrificial death of Jesus on our behalf, so that we might have life. This new life allows us to establish and build relationships that are built upon a lasting quality not found in any other source. The unconditional love of God—Christ in us—is the source of how we are to love, serve, and lead others in relationship.
