1 John 3:16-18, 4:7-12 – “Love like Jesus”

Following Jesus means becoming more like him – especially in love and compassion. In John’s first letter, he makes it clear that we are to follow the example of Jesus love, which means taking the initiative in serving, acting self sacrificially, and revealing the truth of the gospel. When we love one another like this, God’s love is made complete among us.
