What’s Love Got to Do with It by Pastor Brandon Cormier
John 4:7-13 (TPT)
Those who are loved by God, let his love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of him. The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love. The light of God’s love shined within us when he sent his matchless Son into the world so that we might live through him. This is love: He loved us long before we loved him. It was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins. Delightfully loved ones, if he loved us with such tremendous love, then “loving one another” should be our way of life! No one has ever gazed upon the fullness of God’s splendor. But if we love one another, God makes his permanent home in us, and we make our permanent home in him, and his love is brought to its full expression in us. And he has given us his Spirit within us so that we can have the assurance that he lives in us and that we live in him.
You cannot love well until you have been loved well.
“He loves you more than you love Him, and He loved you before you loved Him.” – Bernard of Clairvaux
You must realize that Jesus deeply loves you!
Only in a loving relationship are we free to be the truest version of ourselves.
You never have to be concerned about Him walking out on you.
“When we love God, we naturally run to Him – frequently and zealously!” -Francis Chan
The big challenge // question tonight:
1. Where do I go to find love?
2. Who do I believe loves me the most?
Have I received God’s Love?
How is God’s love impacting others through me?
