What If We Loved Like Jesus Loved? by Ralph Waldow

John 3:16 Love is initiated by God in giving His son, and His son died for us.

Mat 22:36-40
Great commandments
a. Love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind
b. Love your neighbor as yourself

Eph 3:16-19 Rooted and established in love

1 John3:11-18
We love one another. Remaining in love points to the spiritual reality of God (who is love) in Christ (who demonstrated God’s love) in you.

Our practical application of this love is 2 ways:
1. Vertical - between you and God
2. Horizontal - between you and the ones close to you.
