LOVE is & not...
July 6 - September 7, 2023
Our first understanding of the word LOVE comes from our family and culture. But we must know the definition of LOVE according to God, especially when we want to keep His greatest commandments to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind" This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important. "Love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:37-39 NLT).
So join the RTB community as we journey to LOVE God's way. In the first week, we will read the book of 1 Corinthians. We would answer the questions: What did we learn about God and the Corinthians? In the following weeks, we will dig into what LOVE is and is not by studying the 16 words and phrases that describe LOVE in 1 Corinthians 13 1-13. For example, in week two, we will learn how LOVE is patient but not easily angered by reading supporting scriptures. And when we come together, everyone participating is encouraged to share the scriptures they found related to the words we are discussing that week.
For a bonus, during this study on Love, we will start every conversation with a section called "Out of the Mouth of Babes," where we will hear from the babes in Christ for 5 minutes about what they studied, what they understood, or if they have questions. We will encourage them as the Holy Spirit leads, and then we will continue the conversation for the evening.
To keep us on the same road to LOVE, there is a schedule for the words we will study weekly on Thursdays. Starting July 6th - September 7th. If you are interested, sign up below to get the schedule, links to the virtual meetings, and more.
