Embrace the Word ~ February 2024: Bold Love Week 4

| | | | | | | | | | | | | |

Hello everyone! We all have come down to the final week of our Embrace the Word Study, Bold Love! 

Last week, we looked at the RADICAL LOVE we are called to. One dictionary definition of “radical” is “very different from the usual or traditional: extreme.” Jesus exemplified a love that transcended the norms of His time, being considered radical then and still deemed so today. His love defied societal expectations and embraced individuals marginalized by society. It went beyond cultural boundaries, inspiring compassion in a world characterized by division and judgment.

Embracing radical love is a high calling! Our love must surpass worldly standards, displaying kindness that exceeds expectations. Refuse to let societal norms limit the depth, breadth, and height of your love. Emulate the love exemplified by Jesus! Friends, let us mirror the love of Jesus! By loving as He did, we strive towards mature love!

Mature love is selflessness and unconditional and reaches out to all individuals. This love goes beyond mere sentiments and personal biases, encompassing everyone without prejudice or partiality. We are called to love enemies, friends, and all those in between. This mirrors God’s radical love! It reflects the love of Jesus! It mirrors the love we are called to have one for another.

This last week will look at Unity, Forgiveness, and Selfless Love. Unity has been given to the church by the Holy Spirit. Jesus, the Prince of Peace, has brought us together. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we should be defenders of unity!!! Also, we will end the month looking at how forgiveness fits in with bold love.
