*Deep relationships*

John 14:9a NLT
[9] Jesus replied, "Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and *yet you still don't know who I am*?
約翰福音 14:9 (CCBT)
9 耶穌說:「腓力,我和你們相處了這麼久,*你還不認識我嗎*?

Love tangibly

1 John 3:16,18-19 NLT
[16] We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. [18] Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; *let us show the truth by our actions.* [19] Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God.
約翰一書 3:16, 18-19 (CCBT)
16 主耶穌為我們捨命,我們由此便知道什麼是愛,我們也應當為弟兄姊妹捨命。 18 所以,孩子們啊,不要單在口頭上說愛人,*總要以真誠的行動表現出來* 。

Live honestly

Ephesians 4:14-15 NLT
[14] Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won't be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. [15] Instead, we will *speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ,* who is the head of his body, the church.
以弗所書 4:14-15 (CNVT)
14 使我們不再作小孩子,中了人的詭計和騙人的手段,給異教之風搖撼,飄來飄去, 15 *卻要在愛中過誠實的生活,在各方面長進,達到基督的身量*。他是教會的頭,

Forgive continually

Luke 17:4 NLT
[4] *Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day* and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive."
路加福音 17:4 (CCBT)
4 *就算他一天得罪你七次*,每次都對你說,「我悔改‧」你都要饒恕他。
