Topic of the Month–Godly Love Among Believers

This unit contains five sessions. John elaborates on how believers love by serving and portrays Jesus’ explanation of the intertwining love of God for Jesus and for those who abide in Christ. First John clarifies the abiding love of God through the Holy Spirit, which makes it possible for us to love one another. Acts reveals the expression of the love of God in the formation of the early Christian community by the workings of the Holy Spirit. James tells of the love of neighbor as the fulfillment of the law of God.

November 1—Serving Love

Multiple definitions of love lead people to be confused about how to love. What is the bottom line (“end”) when it comes to love? Jesus taught that our love for one another should be manifested in our service to others.

 

Teacher: Reverend Collette Caldwell

November 8—Abiding Love

We try to love, but we feel beaten down by the world’s greed and jealousy. How can we love one another in the face of the world’s selfishness? Jesus declares that we will be able to love one another if we abide in Him, keep the commandments, and abide in His love as the Holy Spirit abides in us.

 

Teacher: Reverend Edith Bell

November 15—Confident Love

Hatred toward others sometimes seems far easier than love. How can we show love for others? The willingness of Jesus to die for us and His command that we live for others brings that confidence.

Teacher: Brother David Toppin

November 22—Responsive Love

In every community, there are people who have less than they need to maintain healthy lives. How can we best meet the needs of everyone in our communities? As the first believers in Jesus shared every thing in common, the needs of everyone were satisfied.

 

Teacher: Pastor Henry

November 29—Impartial Love

Favoring one person or group over others is a common occurrence in human relationships. Why is it unacceptable to show partiality to certain people or groups? James reminds us that love requires us to abstain from favoritism.
