On today’s solo show, we are addressing the topic of love, the importance Scripture places on it, and how God's Word defines it. I hope you will walk away from this chat feeling well equipped to better understand and live out love in a culture and time that is very confused.

What I Chat about in Today’s Episode:

~The topic of love, and why it is such an important topic for believers, especially, to grasp

~The importance of understanding the Bible's definition of love

~The extremes that are on both sides of the spectrum and seen in the church and culture at large: 1) the idea that as long as you speak truth, you are ok and it doesn't matter how you present it because that is the most loving thing you can do and 2) the idea that love means you approve of and accept everything anyone does; why these are both wrong and unbiblical

~The primary call of a Christian - to love; why it is important to understand this and how we are falling down on our job

~Love as the supreme thing

~Paul's definition of love in 1 Corinthians 13

~How Paul's clear definition of love makes it clear that your presentation DOES matter, your motive DOES matter, and just "speaking truth" is not enough

~How Paul's clear definition of love makes it clear that loving someone does not mean you approve of and accept everything they do

~Paul's emphasis in Ephesians 4 on speaking the truth in *love*

~The importance of others being able to tangibly feel our love for them - even if and when we disagree

~A deep dive into Ephesians 4, 1 John 3, 1 John 4, John 13, and 1 Corinthians 13

~Love and boundaries

~The sobering reality that if we do not love others, the love of God is not in us, either

~Our call to love everyone, with no exceptions

~And more!
