Commentary from Pastor Michael White:  

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. – 1 Jn 4:8

God is love. The Gospel is the ultimate declaration of His love. He loves you so much that He sent His only Son to die for your sin: to receive death in your place, so that you could receive eternal life!

Everything God does is an expression of love; and that means everything we do should be an expression of love too! You can have a PhD in theology; but if you don’t have love, you have nothing. You can have all the spiritual gifts; but if you don’t minister the love of God to people, it’s all a waste! You can preach the most intelligent message anyone has ever heard; but if it’s not in love, it’s in vain.

Get back to basics. Love well; and let God take care of the rest!


Father, help me to love well! Give me a passion for people. Help me to do the simple job of loving other people well, in Jesus’ name.
