1 John 4:9-11

April 2, 2008 Leave a comment

In verses 9-11, John reminds us that God’s love is clearly illustrated by Jesus’ sacrifice.

Again, the starting point of love, its original source, is God–not humans!

Therefore, we ought to love one another.

How would the world be different if our default perspective were love instead of suspicion?

Although I agree with Jesus that we should turn the other cheek, I have a very hard time seeing how to apply this perspective to world affairs. Maybe that’s just because it hasn’t been done before.

How would the world look different if we’d turned the other cheek after 9/11?
