1 JOHN 4:7-21; JAMES 2:14-26; JOHN 13:34-35; ROMANS 5:8; ROMANS 12:9

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son. Powerful words. Powerful truth. God's love is reaching to us, enabling our love to reach back to Him and out to others. This is the highest goal: love God and love others. We must reach. Not simply with words but in deeds. We celebrate reaching love.
