A LOVE THAT GETS THE WORLD'S ATTENTION
People talk of love...
I love this hamburger.
Most times it is a selfish kind of love. You do for me and I’ll do for you.
Jesus loved people who could do nothing for Him. WE ARE THOSE PEOPLE
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
What God means when he speaks of love?
Love your enemy -
Jesus said forgive them for they know not what they do.
Jesus loved Judas.
Love counts most when someone is unlovable.
LOVE IS WHAT WILL CHANGE PEOPLE
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
LOVING GOD ENOUGH NOT TO COMPROMISE
Time of pressure introduces you to your real character and reflects Christ to others.
What is God? LOVE
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
Heavens crown wearers will be earth’s cross bearers.
