When someone says, “I love you,” there is only one acceptable response: “I love you, too.” In Christ Jesus, God declares His love to us. Now it’s our turn. The only authentic response to such love is to love God and His people in return. It is love in action--through us. A love that bears fruit by reaching across boundaries of race, class, and gender; a love that transforms us, and forms us into one family of God; a love that ushers in the kingdom of heaven.
