Sermons about Kindness
In an age where the family is in danger of extinction, Love cries out. Can you hear her? Do you want her to be a part of your life? Will you let her restore? Love is the answer.
Design, Desire, And The Kindness That Leads To Repentance
Dr. Daniel Taylor, author & guest lecturer for the 2013 Spring Lectureship, speaks about the power of kindness and blessing.
Jim takes us through Luke 15 and the stories Jesus told of how much Jesus loves us and rejoices when we turn to him. His great kindness changes our thinking. He pursues us and strengthens our faith. Because of this grace, we then can rejoice.
What’s love got to do with it? Absolutely everything. God Himself wouldn’t necessarily disagree. The pages of the Bible overflow with amazing examples of love pouring out from the lives of others and certainly none compare to the love of Christ at the cross of Calvary where the Savior reached out His hands and died for a world of sinners.
Love is the greatest gift we can give to any relationship. This message reviews the power of love from 1 Corinthians 13 when given to marriages, friendships... even our enimies!
We live in a contentious world. Every day people on the street distance themselves from us, treating us as if we do not exist. Worse yet, in our very homes we throw more punches and insults than we give hugs and words of affirmation. Churches are not immune to contention. Fortunately, the virtue of kindness--family affection--shows love to God's family through touch, taste, smell, sound, and sight. We must learn to show love to our brethren as we become virtuous people.
God designs His church to be a place of joyful connection to others. Peace can be restored only when grace is extended. As we learn to enjoy God we’ll find the ability to enjoy God’s people. Remember - you can’t give away to others what you yourself do not possess.
The final stanza of Psalm 23 is packed with promises for people like us who live in the tension of this beautiful and broken world. David celebrates God's pursuing love - His covenant faithfulness - and delights himself in the knowledge that God is for him. Because of Jesus, our perfect King, we, too, and live in the reality of knowing God is for us in all things, even when our circumstances and our fears seem to tell us otherwise.
