Sermons about Love

Our Desperate Need for Christmas

Date: December 8, 2019 | Speaker:

All human beings who have ever been born were created to love God. In fact, the greatest command of all is to love God, but instead, we have replaced that love for God with love of self. As a result, we no longer find delight in living for Him, but rather, we live for ourselves and willfully step over His boundaries. Since we are all sinful, it is impossible for us to restore our broken relationship with God on our own, so God sent His Son to do what we could not do, and to rescue us.

Where Are Your Choices Taking You?

Date: June 2, 2019 | Speaker:

It’s funny to watch two children staring at the last slice of pizza or the last piece of birthday cake, trying to decide who will get it. Even as adults, we find ourselves racing other people to the closest parking space, or arranging the details of a business deal to make sure we get better returns than anyone else. When we let our desires lead us instead of asking God for direction, we will never end up where He wants us to be. So, what is driving your choices in life right now?

A True Disciple is Obedient and Loving

Date: October 7, 2018 | Speaker:

We all have our own ideas of what love is, but the Bible provides the only true definition. It tells us that we cannot just say we love God and love others; our actions must back up our words. We prove our love for God, not by talking about it, but by obeying His commands. And we prove our love for others, not through words, but by serving them and sacrificing ourselves for them, just as Jesus did for us. If we don’t obey God, we don’t love Him. If we’re not serving others, we don’t love them. So, how is your love?

Blessed are the Merciful

Date: August 5, 2018 | Speaker:

Deeply ingrained in every human heart is a desire for justice. This is part of the image of God that has been imprinted on our nature, but because of sin, our desire for justice has been distorted. It now lurks inside us, keeping track of all the ways other people have offended us, and constantly demanding that they pay for what they’ve done. But rather than seeking revenge, Jesus said His followers should be quick to show mercy by forgiving the debts of others, even if they don’t deserve it. After all, God forgave us of all our sin, and we did nothing to deserve it!

The Two Greatest Commandments

The Two Greatest Commandments

Date: May 6, 2018 | Speaker:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it. Love your neighbor as yourself.” — Matt. 22:37 This is the only acceptable attitude we can have towards God if we truly want to be set apart and used by God to make a difference in this world; loving not as the world loves but loving as God loves. It is the foundation upon which everything we do for Christ must rest. If you have a desire to make a noticeable difference in this world for Christ, it will be through your love for others.

Living in View of God’s Love

Date: January 14, 2018 | Speaker:

Life is short and the world is filled with trouble as a result of man’s sin, and we all feel the impact of that. Is there somewhere we can turn to find true, lasting love and satisfaction that can actually make us rejoice and be glad regardless of what is going on around us? The world promises satisfaction, but it never lasts. Only the Bible has the answer. Have you found it yet?

Finding What Only Christ Can Give

Date: August 13, 2017 | Speaker:

We all spend our lives searching for many things, and what we don’t realize is, our deepest search is a craving for what was lost in the fall of man. But that missing piece can only be found in one place, and that is in Christ. While the world can satisfy our longings for a short while, only Christ can give us the grace, love and peace we so desperately need. Has your search led you to Christ?

Sticking Together in Hard Times

Date: July 16, 2017 | Speaker:

As we face the trials and hardships of life, we must not face them alone. Some Christians think they can separate themselves from the Body of Christ and still survive, but the notion of individual Christianity is not found anywhere in the Bible. Peter gives us vital instructions on how to stick together when life tries to tear us apart, and when we do, our lives will bring glory to God. Make sure you are not trying to do life alone!

A Love That Changes Everything

Date: May 14, 2017 | Speaker:

It is human nature to strike back when someone hurts us, but Christ calls us as His followers to respond with love and blessing instead. This kind of love startles people; it pierces them and affects them deeply because it allows them to experience a first-hand encounter with Christ. But responding this way not only blesses others, it also brings promised blessings to us! Is your life showing this kind of love?

The Influence of a Godly Husband

Date: April 30, 2017 | Speaker:

It is a common joke in our society that men don’t understand women, but the Bible commands husbands to live with their wives in an understanding way. Men, how hard are you working to really know your wife and treat her with the honor God says she deserves? And are you aware of the consequences that await if you fail to do so?

The Influence of a Godly Wife

Date: April 23, 2017 | Speaker:

The Bible instructs wives to submit to their husbands, but surely that’s an outdated idea in our modern, enlightened society! Is this still God’s plan? If so, why is it so difficult to carry out, are there limits to submission, and how will God bless a marriage when a wife chooses to trust Him in this area?

Loving Like We’ve Been Loved

Date: February 19, 2017 | Speaker:

“I love you.” Those three words are spoken millions of times every day, but we all know that it is much easier to say those words than it is to actually live them out. Yet the Bible calls us to extend ourselves in love to others the way Christ extended Himself in love to us. He poured Himself out, holding nothing back. That seems like an awful lot to ask! Is that even possible, and if so how are we supposed do it?
