Like deviled eggs, there is nothing about deviled eggs that I like
I don’t like the smell, the looks, or especially the taste
Its safe to say I hate deviled eggs
Some people dislike boxing or NASCAR or competitive eating as a sport
Some hate bell bottom pants, or rainy days, or Mondays
I suppose we all have things which are less than our favorites
But what do you really hate?
We talk about God’s love, but there are some things that God hates
God hates pride, lying, and hypocrisy, just to name a few
And with a passion!
But He never stops loving us
So while vehemently against those things, those attitudes and those actions which can hurt us
His love for the person is always there
God hates the sin but He still loves the sinner
And just think of all the sins committed in all of eternity
From the little white lies all the way up to the most horrible sin you can think of
Every sin from the fall of Adam, until God establishes His eternal Kingdom with the saints
Was placed on Jesus on that cross
His only Son who with every drop of blood covered each and every sin
And that is How God loves you

We must not only worship the right God, but we must worship Him in the right way. Accept no substitutes. Don’t try to reduce God to a material object. Don’t try to localize the One Who is infinite! Link inc. to formatted text, audio, PowerPoint.
