Transforming the Hood
“Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.”
1 John 4:7 NLT
Let us continue to show expressions of love in our neighborhoods. What does love look like from the front door of your home to the front door of your church? Scripture teaches us that if we love we are children of God. We can only love someone when we have learned to love who we are as individuals.
It’s hard to try and love someone that doesn’t love you back, but loving someone back to Jesus requires for us to have a complete understanding of real love.
Real love comes from God. Because God is love. He is the very essence of the word. It’s only through the power of the Holy Spirit that we are able to love others. I want to encourage you today to love your neighbors, neighborhood, and communities back to Jesus. Take time to identify the evidence of God’s love as you travel through the city.
