The Quest of Love

We were created to dream the impossible dream. We are finite creatures created for Infinity. We were made for the knowledge of The Holy One. We were made to know Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which is eternal life.

This all-consuming love for God has one crucial correlate - we must love our neighbor as ourselves. There is no real love for God which does not entail love for the real people around us.

Perhaps the apostle Paul was meditating upon our text for this coming Lord's Day when the Spirit moved him to pen the words of Romans 13:8-10: "The one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments...are summed up in this word: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law."

Join us this Lord's Day to see how you can practically pursue the love of God by loving your neighbor.
