Imitating God: Absurd Generosity

Absurd Generosity Imagine the world around you without God. Having a hard time doing this? That’s because it’s impossible. In this introduction to the series, we’ll recognize the absurd generosity that God shows to us, which sets the groundwork for why we give to others. We are called to be generous because our Father in…

Love…Sees It Through

Love is hard. There are so many times when we’re just weary. We give and give and give and never seem to get anything back. Jesus displayed so much love through his life and ministry. He had every right to expect a little something back. But human love is always tainted by selfish motivations. Still that’s the thing about God’s love. It’s committed. It does what it needs to do. Love sees it through. Mark 11:1-10, John 19:28-30

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

Eternal Perspective (New Year’s Eve)

New Year’s helps us remember God’s presence throughout our lives. While another year is passing, and we look forward to the coming year, we recognize that in both our joys and our sorrows, God has been and is with us. It is his gracious presence in our lives that not only gives us purpose but also fills us with peace. It is his presence that gives us hope for the future. Lord, give us an eternal perspective on your presence! Psalm 90:1-17
