“And this is his commandment: We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he commanded us. Those who obey God’s commandments remain in fellowship with him, and he with them. And we know he lives in us because the Spirit he gave us lives in us.”
1 John 3:23-24 (NLT)
Believe, love, obey…they are commands, but really more of an invitation to meet with God, Jesus and the Spirit in the ultimate small group experience.
