Below is a sermon I preached this morning, my hearts prayer is that we may fall madly and desperately in Love with the Lover of our soul Jesus Christ! May this sermon encourage and challenge you
Love-a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person/to have a strong liking for; take great pleasure in
Introduction- I looked up the word Love on google and there were About 2,380,000,000 it covered anything from loving a person, place, or thing. Love is horribly misunderstood in our word. The world says that if you love me you have to do something for me, and I can love you one day but not the next. God’s love is true, always there, and pure
1. He Loves Us
a. Even before we knew Him
Romans 5:8 But God shows his great love for us in this way: Christ died for us while we were still sinners. while we were of no use whatever to him.
b. His love is real and true
1 John 4:10 This is what real love is: It is not our love for God; it is God's love for us in sending his Son to be the way to take away our sins.
He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realise just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
2. I Choose To Love Him
a. With all of me
Matthew 22:37 Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind
b. Our love must be real
Romans 12:9 Your love must be real. Hate what is evil, and hold on to what is good.
Conclusion- I encourage you this morning to fall madly in love with Jesus, by walking with Him, and talking with Him, and listening to Him. He’s here with us this morning let Him have all of you!
