We are enamored with love. As the song goes, we truly believe that “all we need is love.” It is the focus of our movies, our books, our art, our very lives. But what does it really mean to be a loving person? The Apostle John was a man changed by love. He was best friends with the one who embodied love itself: Jesus. When he first met Jesus, he nicknamed John as a “Son of Thunder.” But now, as an old man, John was known as “the Apostle of Love.” Meeting Jesus changed his life forever. What can this man teach us about love? What does it mean to live a life of love? You are invited to join us as we hear from the Apostle of Love and explore his letter called First John.

1 John 1:1-4
1 John 1:5 – 2:2
1 John 2:3-14
