Summer of Love - Love Means Obeying
The way to know the Father is to live and love the way Jesus did.
What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
What was a rule that you had to follow as a kid that you hated, but you followed it anyway? As an adult, are you able to see the reason for the rule, and does it even matter if you see the reason? Why or why not?
Read: 1 John 2:3-11
Do you feel like you know God? Do you feel like you have a relationship? Why or why not?
Jesus made the command “Love one another” new. Have you ever had someone take something you already knew and make it new?
We can’t live as we are supposed to if we also hate others. Have you been in situations where your hate or others’ hate has destroyed a relationship? Was reconciliation able to happen?
What keeps you from obeying?
What keeps you from loving?
What command do you struggle with that you can work on?
Prayer: Pray that you are obedient.
