Last weekend Wes and I had the opportunity to help out at a Disciple Now weekend at my senior year of high school church. Naturally, since it was Valentine’s Day weekend the theme was “Love”. But they didn’t make it a purity seminar weekend, or about dating.
It all boiled down to God loving us, us loving God, and us loving people. And it’s all rooted in the Gospel.
“The cross is where God’s justice and God’s grace collide”. God is holy and just. And from that we can get a better picture of how good and perfect his love is.
His love changes us, it compels us. And it’s the reason we can love others. It’s the reason we can love even when we think people are unlovable.
