God’s Love #1 – The Question

Posted by on Jun 11, 2008

…just stumbled across this great video of Brennan Manning – had to share it! It’s got me inspired to do a short series of articles related to the ridiculous extravagance of God’s love for us.

  2. When i think of love two bible verses comes to my mind. The first verse is John 3:16 FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTEN SON SO HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NEVER PERISH YET RECEIVE EVERLASTING LIFE THROUGH HIM; and a short passage from 1 Corinthians 13 THERE ARE THREE THINGS THAT WILL ENDURE-FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE-YET THE GREATEST OUT OF THE THREEO F THEM IS LOVE.
