Sermons about Love
Looking at John's message to the churches concerning obedient belief and love as well as his warning to the believers concerning the traveling false teachers. Also, we look at what substitute gospels false teachers bring to us today.
Sermon #27 from the "God with Us" series. Scripture from John 10:22-42.
Primary Claim: Those who walk in God's light demonstraste self-giving love for all other believers.
While the metaphor has been marred by poor example, God loves us like a father loves his children. He gives Christ-followers a new identity. Those born of Him are righteous (1 John 2:29) and purified (3:3). This intimate reality goes against a culture where fathers abandon their children and personal worth grows out of impersonal labels. John wants his beloved readers to fix their eyes on the Father's affection. It will change them, if not now, then at Jesus' return.
The way of love surpasses the most wonderful gifts.
Timothy speaks of God's will that all men be saved, yet Ephesians talks of "predestination". Elder Justice explores the relationship and meanings attached to these theological hot buttons, and presents a clear explanation as to how they are not opposites, but clearly a part of the Lord's plan for our growth and eventualy destination.
