“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” 1 John 4:10-12

I am COMMITTED to loving God and loving others.

Two teams don’t automatically become one team because they wear the same JERSEY (also…substitute “CHURCH” for “team”).

Disagreements are different than divisions; divisions run DEEP…and UGLY.

The love of God is paid in SWEAT, TEARS, and BLOOD.

“If we don’t come together – right now – on this hallowed ground, we will be DESTROYED.” –Coach Herman Boone

It doesn’t work to have a LUKEWARM commitment to a winning team or church.

Love DEFEATS all opponents (Romans 8:31-32, 37-39).
