Title: Loving Jesus in our fellow human beings
Bible verse: 1 John 4: 19–20
We love Him because He first loved us. If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
Message: Those who love God will also love their fellow human beings
- God is the Creator of all human beings. In this sense, the whole of humanity is one big family.
- The history of sinful mankind is pervaded by hatred and homicide.
- The love of Jesus is stronger than hatred, and His life is stronger than death.
- His love seeks to express itself concretely in our lives by prompting us to help our fellow human beings.
