An Evangelism Thought...
“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God” Ephesians 5:1-2
God's call to us to love one another is not merely to be nice to each other, but to be willing to sacrifice for each other, since we are all one body in Christ.
