1 John 3.16-24

This coming Sunday, during our 8:45am & 11am services we will be focusing on 1 John 3.16-24. In this passage John writes: "Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action." So often, we hear the pontification of talking heads sharing how they feel/think at any given moment. The louder you are ----- the more airtime you are given. And if you have enough money, then you get to spend an inordinate amount of time on CNN or Fox News or WRAL or WUNC. In the midst of that chatter I would like to reiterate that 1 John says. We are to love with truth and action. How we show Christ's love is by being people of the truth and by being people of action. I am so tired of hearing the flapping of jaws, instead I would love to hear the movement of God's people participating with the Holy Spirit. Are you tired of empty words and empty promises?
