All We Need Is Love (1 John 4:7-12)Pastor Joe Sanders, February 14, 2010
Part of the Standalone series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
A rather famous band once sang, "All you need is love", and most of us bought what there selling. Not the album or the single, but the concept. We have an entire culture that revolves around the concept of love. Many of us believe that if we can just find love everything will be ok. So we spend a lot of time and money making ourselves lovable and then being disappointed when love doesn't find us, or we don't find it, or we gain and then lose it- or however that works. But its hard to love and receive love if we don't know what it is. The Bible tells us that God is love, and though that often makes us feel pretty good not many of us know that the really means. Join us as we discuss who God is and, therefore, what love is, and how we can live out that love.

1 John 4:7-12
7Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. (KJV)
