The Art Of Neighboring: Week One

Day 4 of 7 • This day’s reading


Our love for God and our love for each other are inextricably linked. The reason we’re able to love at all is because we are loved by God. 


Heavenly Father, you delight in steadfast love. Thank you for loving us while we were not able to love you!


What does a life of fellowship with God look like?

1 John 4:7-21


A life of abiding in the love of God—Father, Son, and Spirit—means a life rich in fellowship. Christ intends for his followers to have fellowship—deep relationship and intimacy—with God and with others.


To the degree that we worship and love God, and know ourselves loved by him, we will be able to love others. Have you ever connected your time spent with God to your time spent with others? How might they relate to each other in your daily life?
