This Sunday we will continue our teaching on “Love is… Love is not…” I plan on talking about how “Love is not provoked (touchy, fretful or resentful)!”
Also, this Sunday is Daylight Saving Time starts, so remember to set your clocks one hour ahead before you go to bed on Saturday night!!!
We have all heard the expression, “He loves me, He loves me not…”! We can all rest assured that the LORD always, unconditionally, irrevocably loves us. The Greek word Agape is used by the writers of Scripture to convey the concept of how much God loves us. Agape is the very nature of God and is a Love that is not based on emotion, feelings, or sentiment, but solely on an act of God’s will. Agape is an unconditional love given freely to all without any thought of reciprocation, nor with any strings attached to it. It is sacrificial love personified in the Lord Jesus Christ.
As a child of God, you have this Agape love inside of you.
In 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 the Apostle Paul lays out 15 points to help us determine what God’s love is and what it is not. He penned this well-known portion of Scripture not to be read at weddings, but to the most problematic and immature church that he had established.
Join us this Sunday (2/18) as we allow the Holy Spirit to mature His Love in us, so that this God-kind of love will be manifest in everything that we do, everything that we say and in every relationship that we have.
Christmas is about Agape Love being birthed into the human race in the Person of that Babe born in the manger! It was His Love for you and I that caused Jesus to cry out to the Father, “Not my will but Your will be done”! Join us this Sunday @ 10 am as we continue our series “Love Is”! Join us after service for lunch and our Christmas decorating party. Next Sunday 12/10 wear your fanciest or funkiest Christmas sweater to Church. Then on Sunday, 12/17 join us after church for our Christmas cookie contest. Bake your best and enter to win!!!
Join us this Sunday 11/19 @10 am as we continue our series on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 entitled, “Love is not…”. Love is not boastful, nor is it inflated with pride!
Do you want to learn how to walk like Jesus walked? Do you realize that your “love life” needs some minor adjustments? 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 lists 15 characteristics of the person who is walking in the Agape love of God. Verse four begins, “Love is patient and it is kind”. Join us on Sundays as we give more definition to this “greatest most excellent way”!
What is first love? Or maybe better asked is “Who is First Love”? Our loving Lord had to set the church of Ephesus back on proper course for leaving “first love”. Join us this Sunday 10/1 as we continue to learn of the magnanimous four dimensional Agape Love of God.
As Christians we must continue to pursue (as a hunter goes after his game and as a runner races for the finish line) LOVE. Join us this Sunday (10:30 am) as we continue to discover how to journey along this More Excellent Way.
