What is identity and how do we know if ours is in Christ? This month we are focusing on God’s unfailing love for us, as we examine scripture to embrace the truth: WE ARE LOVED and create a banner proclaiming it.


Here’s to getting creative and studying God’s word. ⠀

TOPIC: Identity : loved
KEY PRAYER VERSE: Ephesians 3:14-19
READING: John 11:30-37, 1 John 4:7-21, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7


DEFINING LOVE - Week 4 // Inspire Weekly

How have you define love and how has that transpired in your life and relationships? Knowing how God loves us and allowing His power and love allows us to love others, even when it is hard. This week we look at different words for love in the Greek and how we are invited into loving others sacrificially.


PLAYLIST

Each week we feature songs that tie into what we are studying. Praying they convey these truths and more as you take time to listen to the heart and lyrics behind them.

HEART WON’T STOP - John Mark McMillan

NOBODY LOVES ME LIKE YOU - Chris Tomlin

REAL LOVE - Derek Johnson

Use some of your scrap pieces to make a mini bunting. So many sizes and shapes to create from the leftovers.

ADD COLOR TO YOUR LETTERS

Stamp over each letter to add both color and texture or use your favorite coloring medium.

PUT IT ALL TOGETHER

I LOVE seeing projects coming together. Figuring out each piece is fun and speaks to the entirety of the banner. Here is my finished banner with a few close ups to see the details.
