Now, as we enter spring we will be starting a short study entitled “Jonah, John, and the Second Greatest (but most avoided) Commandment”, by Kevin Harvey.
What is the Second Greatest Commandment?
“Love your neighbor as yourself”.
Yet In Matthew 24 Jesus warns us that in the last days many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another, and because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold”.
We live in the turbulent last days and we are seeing an increase in lawlessness.  So, who is your neighbor? How is your love for your neighbor?  Is it strong?  Is it as you love yourself? Or are you beginning to not trust people and turn away from people because of lawlessness?
Jonah’s story and his hatred for the Ninevites, will be the background to John’s teaching in the 1 John on loving our neighbor.
This is an 11 week study and we will introduce the study and provide the study book on Thursday, May 9th during Bible study.
There is a sign up sheet at the Welcome center in the lobby of the church.  The cost of the book is $12.00.
We will provide child care if needed.
I hope you will join us for this study.
We will meet every Thursday morning at 10:00am and every Thursday evening at 6:30pm.
Both studies will go through same content and presently meet at the church. Choose which best suits your schedule!
