We are preaching through 1 John in the night service at the moment and I have enjoyed the series so far. The preaching team has been the regular team, with one of the young ladies from the congregation courageously delivering her first sermon ever.
In this series, it seems to me that every time I take the pulpit, the passage is talking about love, and tomorrow night is no different. Next week we will have a Easter message and then I’m resuming the preaching on the series once again, and yes, the passage once again, speaks on love.
I’m reminded of a story about John Wesley, who was told to preach faith until he has faith himself, and then preach faith until they have faith, and then continue preaching faith. I think the Apostle John has this same kind of mindset. Preach love until you get it, preach love until they get it and then keep preaching love so you don’t lose it.
