Scripture Reference: Hebrews 13:1-6
Truth received will be truth expressed. Love received will be love expressed.
The essence and evidence of faith is to believe God and live by that conviction.
The vision: Set your eyes on Jesus and never look away.
God wants more than what you offer or do, He wants your total surrender.
“acceptable service” —> the surrender of all you are

Friendship (Familial love)
The world is watching how we love each other
I Thessalonians 4:9
Love expressed to strangers
Look for opportunities to reach out to others
I Thessalonians 5:15
Remember the prisoners
INWARD (V 4)
Honorable because God created it
Husbands love wives sacrificially
Wives respect your husbands
Submission isn’t a problem if there is sacrificial love leading the way
Seeking the best, believing the best, speaking the best
UPWARD (V 5-6)
Satisfied —> free from love of money; content with what we have
If you don’t live by the conviction do you really believe what He says?
To believe God and to live by that conviction is to love.
