True Love–1 John 3:16-24

I was blessed and privileged to share the sermon tonight. I wrote the following as a Face Book status today, as I reflected on the power of love.

Because true love is neither merely words or feelings, we can be confident in God’s love through Christ Jesus, that we are made right with him. Despite our broken words, loveless actions and fickle emotions; we can boldly accept that his actions have greater power, his words are solid truth and his feelings towards us are pure love.

Therefore, forgiveness for sin, the empowerment to love, and the fruit of the Holy Spirit is all part of God’s smorgasbord of life, freely offered to all who would but believe, and call on Jesus.
