The Gospel Is Our Love Language
Topic: Biblical Passage: Colossians 1:3–1:6
People suffer enormously when it comes to relationships. We are on the horns of a dilemma. God expects you to be a loving, tender, merciful, gracious, long suffering, patience, kind, joyful person to all people. In reality, we are not that way! Because of acute shame, we invite people to abuse us or vacillate to maintain perfectionism.

*James 1:18 Word of truth, the Gospel!
