The Teens of Faith (TOF) Series is all about learning to fall in love with God. If you don’t first love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, everything else will be pointless.
We spent several weeks talking through each of the bullet points in the picture (and more!). We took a good look at what loving God should look like in our lives.
Tonight we start the second main section of the series: Loving Others. I included the little poster so that you can see a snapshot of what’s coming up. Through this series, I want you to see that loving God MUST overflow into your relationships with others. If you say you love God, you must show it in a love for others, too.
Even if you’re not a “people person,” you’re still expected to love others. I hope it’s made sense so far. Loving God is the foundation. It’s the concrete slab that no one really notices or sees. Loving others is the building. It’s the beautiful part that people see. Loving others in simply building on top of a love for God. It’s acting outwardly what is happening inwardly.
Go love others this week.
