God is love - a Lenten series

On this Ash Wednesday 2018 I intend to reflect on this assertion from John's epistle, 1 John 4:16b "God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them" and this assertion of Jesus, Matthew 22:36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

May your Ash Wednesday and Lent be fruitful.
