"My Relationship With God? It's Personal."

By Pastor Duane Cross

06.20.21

“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”

Romans 12:18

 

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.”

2 Peter 3:18

 

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?”

1 John 3:16-17

 

“Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.”

1 John 4:7-10

 

“THE FURIOUS LOVE OF GOD”

 

 

 

1. WHO YOU ARE

 

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.”

Ephesians 2:13

 

2. HOW WE LIVE

 

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

1 John 4:18

 

“TO BE SEIZED BY THE POWER OF A GREAT AFFECTION”

 

3. HOW YOU LOVE AND WHY YOU OBEY

 

“Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome.”

1 John 5:3

 

“We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.”

1 John 4:16
