Choosing to Love

Choosing to Love Deuteronomy 30:11-20 John 14:15-24 In our world today, we seem to have bought-in to the false narrative that love is accidental (that we can’t control it), that it’s something that just happens to us. After all, “you love who you love” - right? In fact, even the way we speak, many times... the language we use... implies the perceived accidental nature of love.
