Thanks for joining us today!
There is much discussion in our society about what Jesus said or didn't say as well as what He meant by what He said or didn't say. So how do we know who is right? We go straight to the source, HIS WORD! Journey with us in 2023 as we explore what Jesus said on a variety of topics and let's dig in together as we seek to understand, apply and live out all that "JESUS SAID".
Now, seemingly more than ever, the definition of love in our society is often changing. So, how do we determine what the definition is, or if a definition even exists? As Christians, we believe that God is love and as such, He alone defines what love is. Since Jesus is God in the flesh, what He says about love and how He models it is our standard. Join with us as we look at what “Jesus Said” about love, how He lived it out and how we are to respond, in our sermon series “You Shall Love”.
Summary - After 7 weeks of digging into some of what JESUS said about love and why and how HE commands it we have learned about loving GOD, loving others (even enemies), how to prioritize love, to accept HIS help and how to abide in HIS love. On this Resurrection Sunday we conclude with HIM saying, "Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends." JESUS alone is the perfect example of this "greater love". In addition to HIM laying down HIS life, HE rose from the dead! Being JESUS' friends means we can love GOD, others and ourselves just like HE commands us to.
We are so happy that you are here!
