No Greater Love
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. John15:13
“My sermon is entitled: No Greater love.”
“What did I say Church?”
No Greater Love.
As I look at the great examples of love stories throughout the ages, there is a list of notable references:
Romeo and Juliet,
Cleopatra and Mark Anthony,
Napoleon and Josephine
The list goes on and on…. But it’s so shocking that there is no mention of the one story that I know, which is the greatest love story where the Father gave His only Son to die an agonizing cruel death- to save you and you and you and even me.
What a love that is! Nothing else can even come close. Because I have lots of love in my heart for Jesus, because of the love I have for you, I appeal to you today that we focus on the love He has for you because of the great sacrifice. And in turn we should love one another with a new love, with a true love.
Let us look at what the Father did for us and think of self, less; and think of others more. Let us love and let our love be a genuine love.
We have been told time and time again that life is too short, too short! because Jesus will soon come. Can I get an Amen?
And He is coming for a Church that can demonstrate attribute of Christ Character. No time for so called fake love.
I believe in 1Corinthians which says: 4 Charity ( love) suffereth long, and is kind; charity (love) envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.8 Charity ( love) never fails!
If it is your desire that the transforming love of Jesus begin its work in your heart today, please stand up and I will call pastor Manning to pray with you.
This is the Spirit Speaking. Divinity in humanity. What a sermon from a child genius!
Out of the mouth of a babe the Spirit speaketh. Let Him that has an ear hear what He is saying.
