Perfect Love – Sermon Series
What comes to mind when you hear the word “love?” You may think of Valentines’ Day, with colorful hearts, roses and candy when you think of the word love. You might think of your family and the loving memories you share with those you cherish. And while love can be found in relationships and in things both in and of this world, we serve a God who loves more deeply and intimately than we can imagine. Love that casts out any fears we have – PERFECT LOVE.
September 12 – Love that Makes a Difference
Justification is offered to all who earnestly repent and seek to live in peace with God our Father. What perfect love God has for His beloved children – to forgive in the face of the deepest sin.
New Revised Standard Version
Results of Justification
5 Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have obtained access[b] to this grace in which we stand; and we[c] boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we[d] also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. 8 But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.
