God created humans with the capacity and desire both to love and be loved. We reflect God in this way as creatures made in his image and after his likeness. Yet due to sin, something as seemingly simple as love has become quite complicated in our broken world. Both practically and doctrinally we know that our hearts can ask some difficult questions about God's love and our love. Does God love me? How do I know I love God? Does God love everyone? Does he love everyone in the same way? How do I love those who don't love God?
Join us on Friday-Saturday, April 26th-27th for God Loves You as D. A. Carson, Thabiti Anyabwile, and Vermon Pierre help us consider the difficult doctrine of the love of God.
