Col 3_14 Love- The superglue of the Church
Text: Colossians 3:14
Title: “Love: the Superglue of the Church”
Theme of the book of Colossians: Jesus Christ: The preeminent and all-sufficient Savior
Theme of Text: True love will unify the body of Christ.
Illustration: In the first century after Christ, the Roman government was disturbed about the early church. Christians were increasing in number rapidly. Because they wouldn’t take incense and put it before the image of the emperor, the Romans thought that they might be disloyal. Spies went into the Christian meeting and came back with this report: “There Christians are very strange. They meet together in an empty room to worship. They do not have an image. They speak of One by they name of Jesus, who is absent, but whom they seem to be expecting at any time. And my, how they love Him and how they love one another.” Now if spies came to our church from some government to see us, what would be the verdict? Would they comment on our love for each other?
