The Love languages of God

The summary of all the commandments:    Matthew 22:37-40  ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD …

How do we get back our first love?         

  • When you SHOW love, you begin to FEEL love. Start building it with demonstrations of love.

1 John 4:10-19     Abiding in His love – making it a daily practice…

  • The way we receive the love of God determines whether we CAN love Him back
  • If we fail to receive that love, we will always fail to give it.

Q:  How does GOD like to be loved?   The same ways He loves us!

  • Priorities are reflected by what we actually do with our time and resources, not what we intend to do.
