Love Names

Love Names

Regardless of the name we use, God’s people are to be known by one defining characteristic: Love. That love is not defined by Hollywood or Nashville, it is defined by Jesus on the cross. Join us for week two of What’s in a Name as consider what it means that God’s banner over us is love.

Passage:

  • Song of Solomon 2
  • John 13:34-35

Principle:

His love defines us (John 3:16; John 19:18-19; Romans 5:8)

His love identifies us (John 13:34-35; 1 John 3:16)

His love transforms us (2 Corinthians 5:14-15)

Practice:

Allow this question to shape every decision you make: What does love require of me?
