What do we owe?

Romans 13:8-10

“On the whole, God's love for us is a much safer subject to think about than our love for Him.” C.S. Lewis

I know this is true – because Gods's love for us is infinite and unchanging! Mine on the other hand is subject to whim and feelings. Sunday I want to continue the themes begun by the other pastors and focus on what we owe each other based on God's love for us. We as a church family love to spend time in the Word and enjoy each other's fellowship – but what about how we show love to others? Sunday will be a simple question: how do we love those around us? 1 John 3 says that the world will know we are Christians by our love toward each other – that same love is tested by how we show love to that same watching world. God's love is not just about loving the lovely – it is also about loving the souls God loves – all of them! Showing love becomes our highest goal and greatest privilege – it is when we are most like our Savior. God is love – 1 John 4:8 – let us love one another both those like usin faith and those not yet like us in faith but loved by God!

Act in such a manner that you are living proof of a loving God.

By God's grace, I will see you Sunday!
