In the conversation for this Sunday, February 14, 2016, Pastors Stuart Nice & Kim Nowlin lead us through a "Love Checkup" based on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. Click here to view the Love Checkup worksheet.
The passage for this morning's conversation is 1 John 4:7-11.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
(1 John 4:7-11, NASB)

Sacred Reading Text
I may speak in the languages of humans and of angels. But if I don’t have love, I am a loud gong or a clashing cymbal. I may have the gift to speak what God has revealed, and I may understand all mysteries and have all knowledge. I may even have enough faith to move mountains. But if I don’t have love, I am nothing. I may even give away all that I have and give up my body to be burned. But if I don’t have love, none of these things will help me.
(1 Corinthians 13:1-3, God's Word Translation)
