Sermons about Love
Too often we put love in the area of family, close friends or romance. But Paul is reminding us that love is much more broad and foundational to our faith. God is love.
This is only a 50-second excerpt. Act 3:26, "God, having raised up his servant, sent him to you first, to bless you by turning every one of you from your wickedness." Eph 5:6, "Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience." That word disobedience is interchangable with 'unbelief' out of the original text, stemming from where we get our word "apathy." In other words, if you won't allow God's Word to move you then Providence is on the way to help.
Greatest is defined by what lasts. Love lasts because God is love. Without love the other gifts are nothing. As God's children, are actions and relationships are to express our love of God and one another.
It’s time for you as a believer to take your rightful place as a son or daughter of God. When you discover the kind of power you have because of God’s limitless and unconditional love for you, then you will experience peace and joy, and begin to develop an awareness and a confidence that you are on this earth to do something about the world you live in. This powerful teaching will empower you to experience freedom sin and your past, and teach you how to shape what’s going on around you by the word of God that you speak, the Scriptural prayers you pray, and the power of the gift that God has given you through the Holy Spirit.
Jesus does not want his followers to remain static in their comfort zones with status quo priorities. Jesus inaugurates the Kingdom of God & calls us to live into its priorities: bringing good news to the poor; restoring to society those cast out; creating new families & communities of belonging; seeking economic & social justice. Leaving our comfort zones to enter more fully the Jesus Zone - the Kingdom of God - is liberating and overflowing with abundant life.
