The apostle John had one clear message in his letters: Love one another. In the letters of 1, 2, and 3 John, this disciple who Jesus dearly loved encouraged followers of Jesus to love God by obeying His commands. He also told Christians to go above and beyond by showing love and being kind and respectful to fellow believers. John’s message is helpful to us today, showing us how to live like Jesus lived and love like Jesus loved. Finding true joy in our lives comes from knowing Jesus. When we know and love Jesus, we know His love.
Our Community Women’s Bible Study group will be working through this study from Monday, September 14th through October 10th on the YouVersion app: www.Grace4NJ.com/KnowLoveYouVersion. Their studies are simple in format and as rich as your personal Bible time will take you. They really have us focusing on daily meditation of Scripture and allowing the Scripture to instruct through the well-known S.O.A.P. study method of Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer.
