Focus Week is a chance to get away with students from campuses all over Florida and engage topics of faith, missional living, leadership and God’s work in the world. Unplug from a hectic semester and discover Jesus in new ways through daily track time, free afternoons to hang with friends, play sports or nap in a hammock and evening sessions where you can engage in worship and be challenged through scripture.
This year, we are praying God for 50 students from IRSC will be able to join us to Focus week in Ocala, FL on May 2-6 2016. To register for Focus Week, please visit http://www.ivfocusweek.com/ . Some scholarships will be available for all students on a first come first serve basis. Please sign up as soon as possible.
God is Love: His love is Unconditional, and His love is very different from human love. God’s love is unconditional, and it’s not based on feelings or emotions. He doesn’t love us because we’re lovable or because we make Him feel good; He loves us because He is love. He created us to have a loving relationship with Him, and He sacrificed His own Son (who also willingly died for us) to restore that relationship.
The Bible tells us that “God is Love” (1 John 4:8). But how can we even begin to understand that truth? There are many passages in the Bible that give us God’s definition of love. The most well known verse is John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” This is an amazing love, because we are the ones who choose to reject God, yet it’s God who mends the separation through His intense personal sacrifice, and all we have to do is accept His gift.
