Vision 2019: Love
As a community, Bering Drive selects one or more virtues to cultivate together throughout the year. After several weeks of prayerful consideration, the virtues for 2019 is Love.
Dwelling in the Word for 2019
As a community, Bering Drive selects passages of Scripture to meditate on throughout our year together. Our “Dwelling in the Word” passages for 2019 are John 15:9-17 and Galatians 3:26-28 as we continue to focus on practicing Love.
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.
I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit
—fruit that will last—
and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
This is my command: Love each other.
So in Christ Jesus
you are all children of God
for all of you who were baptized
have clothed yourselves
There is neither
Jew nor Gentile,
neither slave nor free,
nor is there male and female,
for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
