Finishing and Furnishing: Love Yourself

God wants you to love others as you love yourself.  But He’s not looking for us to love ourselves because of those identities we create: jobs, financial status, abilities, social status.

Structuring the Supports: Love Your Neighbor

We love and serve one another, not because we feel guilted into it or because we have to, but because Christ’s love compels us to do so.  Through serving, forgiving, leading, and loving others with a pure and selfless heart, we can show our neighbors (family, friends, co-workers, etc.) the love of Jesus. This is possible only because of the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts.

Love…Nailed It

Forgiveness—it sounds so easy. Yet, there are times when we just can’t forgive, when we simply don’t want to forgive. If anyone had reason to feel that way, it was Jesus. Jesus, however, freely offers unconditional forgiveness even to the very men who nailed him to the cross. Forgive, God says, as I have forgiven you. Love forgives! Matthew 18:21-35, Luke 23:34

Love…Embraces All

We say we love all people, but when push comes to shove, we’re pretty selective about where we choose to live and the people we choose to hang out with. Jesus hung out (literally!) with individuals that we church people would deem “beneath us”. And he showed them the same love, the same grace. Love embraces all! John 3:14-21; Luke 23:43

Love…Protects

A mother loves her child and will do everything she can to protect him. Even if the whole world turns against or gives up on her child, she’ll defend and speak well of him to the bitter end. How much greater is Jesus’ love as he seeks to protect his Father’s reputation and the physical well-being of his own mother. Love protects.  John 2:13-22; John 19:25-29

Love…Fights

Forty days in the wilderness without food. Nailed to a cross and left to die. Does God really love me? Does God really care? Or am I truly in this all alone? Yes, the temptation is often there to give up on a relationship when we don’t feel the love. Love, however, refuses to throw in the towel, love does not give up. Love fights to hold on to what it knows and believes!  Mark 1:12-15; Mark 15:34

New Year Revolution: Love

Nothing we can do will make God love us less or love us more. Think about how that truth changes your life. Think about how that truth liberates you from the fears and self-imposed expectations that weigh you down. Think about what life would look like, how the world would change if you not only allowed yourself to be loved this way, but earnestly asked God to help you love others this way!

Generous Life

We tend to think that generosity relates only to our money and material possessions. Yet, the scriptures teach that everything we are and have comes from God. That means generosity is an attitude of the heart that touches every aspect of our lives and behavior. Luke 16:1-15
