If I lost everything would it destroy my life?

If you lost everything, would it destroy your life?

We work so hard to get things, to make ministries work, to be accepted, to be saved ?!  But as God's people, as Christians it is Jesus who carries us.  1 Peter 4:2-4

Love is a gift given by God - it's our choice to respond to His love
Christians are to be affectionate in  a real way - caring, honest, integrity - and express this in the local church.  We all fall short, we all need to be given a second chance.  We all need help.  Ernest affection will help carry us - love covers a multitude of sins.  We are to love each other regardless and like the early church experienced - people will see it and respond to it.

Love: we're not talking about romantic love.  We're talking about the choice to care, show charity (love) as God shows it.  It's not how we feel, we're to respond to others like JC did.  All Chrisitans are to express God's love.

Offer hospitality without grumbling
Serve each other

Have peace between yourself and God regardless of any situation you find yourself in.
