As I write this the deadline for entering photos for Capturing Love is drawing near and I’m wondering what to submit. What picture would encapsulate what it means to love? Hopefully on Sat 17th Jan we’ll get to see lots of examples, why not come along and bring some friends, it promises to be a great evening.
Well I may be stuck on a photo but I think that I can come up with a book and some resolutions that will help us.
The staff team have just started reading a great book by Phil Ryken called ‘Loving the way Jesus loved’. It works through that great chapter on love in 1 Corinthians 13 and stops us being sentimental and romantic when we use the word. Pick it up at CLC here http://www.eden.co.uk/shop/loving-the-way-jesus-loves-4011445.html
Then if you’re into resolutions why not have a look at a great post by John Piper here http://www.desiringgod.org/blog/posts/seven-resolutions-to-pursue-love-in-2015. He gives us seven, practical, Biblical, Christ-exalting ways that we can love more in 2015.
