No Greater Love - John 15

Perhaps the most intense love and protective instinct in the experience of mankind is that of parents toward their children. There is little that most mothers or fathers wouldn't do for a baby. If a truck posed a threat to the little one, it wouldn't surprise us if they jumped in front of the moving vehicle without a second thought.


Wouldn't you like to be cared for with this kind of intensity? You are. In fact, the Lord's love toward you is far deeper and more secure than that of even the most caring, tuned-in human parent. And what God did for us is proof. Romans 5:8 says that while we were living in disobedience, He sent His only Son to die on the cross for us.


Think about a father giving up his child for people who choose to rebel against him. What a tremendous sacrifice and cost! Jesus' death took the place of the punishment that we deserved. If we accept this gift and decide to follow God, He no longer sees us as guilty. Rather, He justifies us, makes us righteous, and changes our ultimate destiny: instead of facing everlasting separation from Him, we will enjoy His presence eternally. What's more, almighty God adopts us as His children forever. Our heavenly Father guides, protects, and counsels us as we walk through life - and promises us that we are secure in Him throughout eternity.


How incredible that the Creator of the universe would love you and me in this way! Do you know and experience the security and sweetness of His care? Gratitude and praise should flow from your heart. In turn, love others deeply out of thankfulness for the love that you have received.



Current Sermon Series
      How should today's church conduct itself in order to comply with Christ's mandate? How can your role as a leader or a worker make a difference in your church? As we study various passages from God's Word, we will see the clear direction given by Christ, who nurtures and provides for His body, the church.


Last Week:
      In this message we dealt with 2 more marks: concern for one another and devotion to the family. There are so many passages that talk about all the "one anothers" but God has called us to be there for one another. Families need to be very important, too.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week:
      We will continue our series on the Marks of a Healthy Church.
