The text for Mother's Day was 1 John 4:7-21
I am reminded of the power of love in this passage because of two particular references I grew up with regarding this passage.
First the song, 1 John 4:7&8
(click on the preview all) and the second was a cross-stitch I had in my room with 1 John 4:19 "We love because he first loved us."
We also have some outstanding lyrics from our anthem this morning. "Go Into the World" arr. Walt Harrah. Go into the world, show God's love to the world.
Then I was caught by the power of the story of Anna Jarvis
. She wanted to be sure we showed love to our Mothers, not just by pretty things, but in our own words, and our own actions.
We must learn to love more clearly.
