Text to Ponder: Ps. 133:1 How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! [NIV84]

Focus: Adapted from 1 Jn 3:1; 1 Jn 4:9 [NKJV]; Eph. 3:19 [NIV84]; 1 Jn 4:10 [NLT]; Ps 103:1 [NASB95]

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!

this love … surpasses knowledge

 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him [as His children].

This is real love—not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

[What can we say in response to this but:] Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name.

We will have communion this Sunday. Father’s Day is the third Sunday; plus, communion fits well with this message.
