God So Loved He Gave with Kelly Kapic

What does it mean to give your life away in light of the Gospel? How might understanding God’s gift of himself free us to live with grace? Before we can talk about how to love and serve others, we must first explore the radical love God has shown us in Jesus Christ. Join us for Conversations in Spiritual Formation (sponsored by the Retreat Ministry at Saddleback Church) as we consider how Jesus is God’s great gift to the world, and what that might mean for our lives as those who have been captured by his love.

“How can we love others? Because He first loved us. And because He continues to love us. God’s love is a powerful liberator. It frees us from the trap of self-absorption and opens us to the other. Love gives us eyes to see, ears to hear, and hands to extend to our God and neighbor. Love is brave, truthful, and generous. Love loves. But when we try to love without first being soaked in divine love—the love of the name—we easily turn 'love' into something ugly. Our endeavors can get twisted into manipulation, consumption, and idolatry. Christian love can never grow out of mere willpower; it must always find its source and strength in God.” — Dr. Kelly Kapic (from “How Then Should We Love”, Read Here)
