Scripture: John 15:1-11; Jeremiah 17:7-8

This week we are tackling John Wesley’s third and final rule for Christian living: stay in love with God.  (And, in order to stay in love with God, we first have to fall in love with God, so, this rule also includes a call to do that!)  This may be the final rule, but it’s also the foundational one – loving God is first, foremost, and essential for Christian life.  Loving God is what gives us the power to do good.  Loving God is what gives us the insight to know what is harmful.  God’s love fills us, strengthens us, and enables us to live the way of love in all things.  Today, we discuss the importance of living in love all our days.
