Live purely in love - sermon on 1 Thessalonians 4.1-12

February 16, 2020

Love is one of God's greatest gifts to us.  Yet we tried to reshape and mold it into our own image - ruining so many of its blessings.  God's writer, Paul, helps us untwist our distortions of love so we can live purely in love - the way God intended, the way we need!

Who are we? Our friends tell us. Our family tells us. Our work tells us. Our society tells us. Our own hearts tell us. They all lie. They all give us a distorted view of whom God has made and declared us to be. Listen to the God who made you, the God who brings you into your family. He will give you the clearest and truest image of who you are! Audio quality is understandable, but poor because of technical difficulties. Our apologies.

Maryim and Marziyeh were willing to go to prison to share Jesus' love with others.  It wasn't the strength of their faith that made them so strong, but the object of their faith - Jesus.  He gave them his love which filled them with his peace to do incredible things.  Is it possible for us to have this same kind of peace in our souls?  Jesus' friend, Peter, tells us, "Yes!" and shows us how.
