Question 2. What does it mean to know, love and serve God?

 

We know God in Jesus Christ witnessed to in scripture.

We love and serve God in worship and in the care and compassion we show for all creation. Worship draws us into the work of Christ. In union with him we pray and work for the healing and salvation of the world. Christ calls us to a life of kindness and generosity. How can we love God, whom we cannot see, without loving those whom we can see?

Jn 1:18 No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the

Father’s heart, who has made him known.

Mt 22:37-39 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all

your soul, and with all your mind…You shall love your neighbour as

yourself.

1 Jn 4::20 Those who say, “I love God,” and hate their brothers or sisters, are

liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they have

seen, cannot love God whom they have not seen.
