Erev Rosh Hashanah 5779 (Loving as God Loves)

September 9, 2018

1 John 2:1-11; Leviticus 19:18, 34; John 3:16-17; 10:17

Loving as God loves is His highest priority for us, and our lives will have a positive impact to the degree we love as He loves. We can give ourselves permission to love as God loves or we can give ourselves permission to hate. But God’s radical, non-congruent love motivates us to serve Him and love others out of affection rather than obligation.
