ABOUT THIS BOOK
“Walking in love and forgiveness” is equivalent to the fourth section in the book “A disciple of Christ” Vol. II, designed to give the believer a solid foundation and the basic tools for becoming a stable and fruitful disciple of Christ. The love of God is the greatest that is in this universe. The Bible says it is the greatest of all (1Co 13:13). Walking in love is the most basic command in the New Testament together with faith in Jesus (1Jo 3:23). In this book you will learn that God is love and that we can walk in His love by loving the Word and doing it. We grow in love by dying to ourselves, living a life of service to others, thereby maturing into responsible leadership. “Speaking the truth in love” (Eph 4:15) is living just like Jesus lived.
