“Strengthening Love” 
Strengthening Relationships Series

Warm up 
Growing up, with whom did you feel the most genuinely loved? What made you feel that way?

1 John 3:14, 16-17, 4:6-7; Luke 22:41-44; Romans 5:6-8 

Message Recap 
Main idea: Love is never free 

Love is: 
1. Loss
2. Pain
3. Risk

Am I truly loving?
What more am I willing to lose for them?
What more am I willing to endure for them?
What more am I willing to risk for them?
