B) PAUL DEDICATED A WHOLE CHAPTER TO LOVE

C) ROMANS 12:9-12 SAYS LET LOVE BE GENUINE, KINDLY AFFECTIONED WITH BROTHERLY LOVE

2: LOVE SERVES

B) HAS THERE EVER BEEN A MORE DEDICATED PUBLIC SERVANT THAN THAT

C) GOD SENT HIS SON FOR THAT PURPOSE

B) IT STICKS AROUND

C) LOVE SEEKS NOT IT’S OWN

C) LOVE TEACHES WHAT IS IMPORTANT

D) WHAT IS UNIMPORTANT

POINT: CHRISTIANS HAVE TO GROW AND MATURE IN GOD’S LOVE. WE HAVE TO GROW UP JUST LIKE WE DID UNDER THE LOVE AND GUIDEANCE OF OUR PARENTS.

2: JUST A GLIMPSE

A) WE SEE DARKLY

B) JUST A GLIMPSE OF WHAT COULD BE

C) ONE DAY WE WILL KNOW FULLY

POINT: WE HAVE GOD’S LOVE DISPLAYED TO US THROUGH CALVARY; DO WE FULLY UNDERSTAND GOD’S UNCONDITONAL LOVE? ONE DAY WE WILL, AND GOD WILL FULLY REVEAL TO US THE DEPTHS OF IS POWER AND LOVE.

CONCLUSION: FAITH, HOPE, LOVE

THESE THREE ABIDE THESE THREE NO ONE CAN TAKE FROM YOU. THESE ARE THINGS ONLY YOU CAN SURRENDER. ONLY GOD CAN FULFILL THESE THREE IN YOU. FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE, THE GREATEST IS LOVE.

FAITH IS THE SUBSATNCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, LOVE IS WHAT DROVE JESUS TO THE CROSS NOT A HAMMER AND SPIKES. LOVE IS THE ACTION OF FAITH AND HOPE.
