Receiving and giving love shaped by the word

Receiving and giving love shaped by the word

Thinking through how it all fits together  – is it enough to love others?  What does obedience to God’s commands mean when it seems to have become more unpopular, and why do Christians needs to be in God’s Word?


Here’s the 2 year reading plan Colin referred to for use in the Bible app
Volume 1 (odd years)
Volume 2 (even years)

More information on the 2 year reading plan can be found at the Riverside Church Reading Plan page here

From the series Core ValuesSeeing and hearing God through His word

1 Peter 1:22–25 (Listen)

22 Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, 23 since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; 24 for

  “All flesh is like grass
    and all its glory like the flower of grass.
  The grass withers,
    and the flower falls,
25   but the word of the Lord remains forever.”

And this word is the good news that was preached to you.
