I Thessalonians 3:12 ” May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.”

Paul’s letter to the Church in Thessalonica  encouraged them to love each other by following the example of Jesus.  For the past year we have been part of a brand new Church plant…bringing people together from several Churches to form a new one.  And today was our second service, with many new faces among us.  So as I look at this verse, I’m reminded that for the past six months we’ve bonded together as a small group,  but now the time has come that we must turn ourselves from our tight circle to welcome those coming in through the doors.  For the agape love of Jesus can only be demonstrated by His Believers when we love others.  And we can only be His hands and feet when our caring shows.
