A Reputation For Love
Every congregation has some sort of reputation. It may have a reputation of being big. It may be known as an aging congregation that's almost dead; or a reputation for having a lot of money. Maybe it's known for its youth program or style of music. The people in town may say that it's a strict, harsh, rule-driven kind of church. But as you read the Scriptures, and especially this text, you get the distinct impression that every church should have a reputation for love. People should point at us and say, "Those folks love one another - I mean, they're really good at it!" Find out what the reputation of your church should be as you listen to "A Reputation for Love."
