Sermons on God's Love (Page 7)
Luke 2, 14, 17, 19. Guest speaker Vicki Kardos speaks about Jesus’ acts of compassion and mercy towards the poor, unclean, “sinners” and socially outcast. As followers of Jesus we are called to the same mission and must beware of neglecting or shutting people out because of our judgements and lack of compassion.
Isaiah 53, Revelation 12. Dale Kuehne draws upon Isaiah’s suffering servant prophecy to remind us that we have all gone astray. It was for our sin that Jesus came into this world to die for our redemption. We did not deserve this act of love, and so we must extend this same grace to all of mankind, even those who we consider worse sinners than ourselves.
Isaiah 30 and 55. Dale Kuehne asks us to consider the areas of our lives where we might be seeking provision, deliverance, guidance and satisfaction apart from God. We’ll always end up disappointed by those “alliances” and idols, but God invites us to come be satisfied in Him, for eternity, free of charge.
Portraying God as love while diminishing or completely denying His judgment of sin has been a problem in both ancient heresies as well as some 21st century sermons. Jesse Andreasen explores several passages that reveal God’s incredible love, patience, and forgiveness while upholding His holiness and justice.
Speaker Jesse Andreasen takes on wrong narratives about God’s wrath and love that have been perpetuated for centuries and still exist today.
Luke 7. Guest speaker Derrick Avery explores Jesus’ encounter with the sinful woman. We all need God’s forgiveness and we all need to offer that same kind of forgiveness to others.
