The Secret to Becoming a Great Lover

From Undergraduate Chapel: Fall 2009

John Riley, Lead Pastor of Student Ministries at Whittier Area Community Church, speaks on how to become a great lover. He explains that a love for both God and others is the highest calling a Christian can live for. John Riley addresses the question of "how do we grow in love?" by reading from Luke 7:36-48. He teaches on how Jesus, through his sacrifice, has given us our lives back again, and that this understanding of forgiveness should lead us to a life of love. John Riley exhorts the Biola community, in light of the woman in Luke 7, to understand the depths of forgiveness and as a result of this realization, to be filled with such great love that it would pour out to those around us. He states that this is the way to become great lovers and that this will be a witness to the world of the Greatest Lover of all.
