Summary of Live together or die alone

Passage – 1 John 4:7-12.

Everyone wants community.

Our mission is to Love God, Change the World, One Life at the Time.   We can accomplish this through community.

1 John 4:7-12:  My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God.
11-12 My dear, dear friends, if God loved us like this, we certainly ought to love each other. No one has seen God, ever. But if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and his love becomes complete in us—perfect love! (Message)

God is love. God loved us first.
Love begins and end with God.
God knows community. God reveals himself in His people when we love one another.
We need community to grow.
