Elder Chris begins in 1 John 3:1, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” The apostle John asks us to step back and behold the manner of the Father’s love. Elder Chris considers seven aspects of God’s Love in this sermon. An everlasting love, a saving love, a covering / quickening love, a sacrificing love, a perfect love, a chastening love, and an unfailing love. We are reminded that even during the last hours of Jesus Christ’s live and considering all the torture that occurred on that day, He thought of us.
