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 5- Love that Seeks us Out
Time and time again, God goes before His people to rescue and redeem them. We see this in Israel, here in Hosea and all throughout the Old and New Testaments. What a beautiful reminder that this prevenient grace is an act of love.
New Revised Standard Version
14 Therefore, I will now allure her,
and bring her into the wilderness,
and speak tenderly to her.
15 From there I will give her her vineyards,
and make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.
There she shall respond as in the days of her youth,
as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt.
