All throughout the Bible, the writers of Scripture remind us that God is love. From the creation of the world to God’s relentless pursuit of us, God has shown time and again that love is most important.
Even though we’ve all sinned, God loved us enough to make a way for us to have a forever relationship with Him. The Gospels are full of moments where Jesus prioritized love above all else, especially when He summed up the greatest commandment with:
Love God and love your neighbor as yourself. Jesus made this real when He showed us how much God loves us by sacrificing His life for our sins.
Our Bible story in 252 Kids Sunday was from the book of JOHN 15:12-13 –
No Greater Love.
SAY THIS TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION:
Love others because Jesus loves you.
“Here is what love is. It is not that we loved God.
It is that he loved us and sent his Son to give
his life to pay for our sins.”
1 JOHN 4:10, NIrV
