The Church as an Institution of Love

Passage: John 12:27-33, Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Titus 1:5-11

Last week, we heard a challenge to live in 2020 as if the only thing we lack is love. The point was that we need to seek the love of God, for we lack appreciation of and transformation in God’s incredible love for us. But in doing so, we will learn and see that we also lack the appropriate love for our neighbors, and thus owe people love. This week, we will learn how the institution that is a church, and specifically Agape Chicago, can help us uniquely grow in what we lack, namely love.
