1 John 4:7-12


Since God loved us so much,
we also ought to love one another.

from 1 John 4:7-12


He is risen!
He is risen indeed!

Jesus' resurrection profoundly transforms not only our relationship with God but also our relationships with others, including those who have sinned against us.

If God loves us enough to send his Son into the world so that we might live and Jesus is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, that immense love leads us to love others as we have been loved.

This maybe hard. People do terrible things to each other, and we may have wounds that remain with us. But the immense mercy of God's love leads us toward healing and forgiveness—not just for ourselves but also for our forgiving others.
