“Love” Lesson #3

“ Loving each other ”


Intro: What do you love the most about Christmas time?



  1. 1 John 4:8-11,Eph 3:18-19 God is the absolute perfect example and definition of love and the Bible shows us how God’s love is manifest to the world.
    1. 1 John 4:18 If we do not know God, and have a personal relationship with God, than it is impossible to correctly understand what love is, or how to love others.
      1. 1 John 4:11-12 God has called us as Christians to love each other, and to show the love of God to the world.
      2. Matt 5:43-47 God wants us to show love to those who do us wrong, and are difficult to love, not only to those who are our friends and treat us well.
    2. 1 Cor 3:6, 2 Cor 5:20 God wants us to show his love to people in our lives who are difficult to love so we can plant seeds to help lead them to Christ.
  2. Matt 5:14, 2 Cor 4:4 We live in a world of people who are spiritually blind, lost and are confused about what is true.
    1. Romans 5:8, Eph 4:15 We are called to show the love of God to drug addicts, prostitutes, homosexuals, gang members, and all who are lost.
      1. John 4:32 We are also called to show them the truth of whats right and wrong according to Gods word, and offer to pray them through the sinners prayer.
      2. Matt 28:18-20 After we lead others to Christ we need to help disciple these new converts showing them Gods love in our church and cell groups.
    2. Rom 10:14-15, Mark 16:15-18 God has called us to show his love to one another as Christians and together show his love to the world!




  1. Does anyone here have an example of a time when you chose to show the love God to someone who treated you wrong?
  2. Can someone share a testimony of a time when you saw others come to know Christ because someone showed the love of God to them?
  3. Why is it so important that we show Gods love and point to the truth of Gods word as we reach out to those who are lost in homosexuality, drugs, fornication etc..?
  4. What group of people has God really give you a love for and a desire to reach out to? What steps are you taking to share Christ with those people?


End: Pray for any who need to understand the love of God in their lives, pray for any who need to accept Christ or rededicate their lives to Christ, then take requests.
