SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (LOVE LIKE JESUS - 1)

main image

 

“WWJD” hit the Christian Culture like a freight train several years back – and while that idea seemed to be a Great Question to ask yourself as a Believer In Jesus… the Answer seemed to vary pending on who you were and where you were in your Relationship with Him! (However…) The Real Answer is really found in One WordLOVE! And Jesus demonstrated HIS LOVE in various ways… so we thought we’d take a closer look at what it really means to LOVE LIKE JESUS for a Follower of Him in a short little series here at COC starting this coming week! Don’t Miss It!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (1) FORGIVES SINNERS

 

What if WE the CHURCH/CHRISTIANS… actually LOVED/FORGAVE LIKE JESUS LOVED/FORGAVE? (Short Answer... The World would be turned Upside Down!)

 

SIN doesn't need any help from You or from Meto put it on Public Display - it's already HORRIFYING enough!

 

JESUS always put PEOPLE before PRACTICES! He knew how much more important it was to LOVE One Another as opposed to LAW One Another!

 

JESUS always ACCEPTS the SINNER… without APPROVING of the SIN! (We should be willing do the same!)

 

JESUS doesn’t FOCUS on Your FAILURE… He FOCUSES on Your FUTURE! (That’s called GRACE!)

 

LOVING LIKE JESUS... ALWAYS SEES THE "BEST" IN OTHER PEOPLE! (You Should Do The Same!)

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (FOR BETTER or FOR WORSE - 4)

main image

I think we all know the basic ingredient requited to FALL IN LOVE… a PULSE! (Right!?) So I think we all would agree… FALLING IN LOVE seems to be the Easy Part today! But here’s where things get a little complicated… STAYING THERE… FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE! (That seems to be something entirely different today!) So we’d like to continue showing you a little about WHAT the AUTHOR of MARRIAGE (GOD) has to say about… FALLING IN LOVE – STAYING IN LOVE – FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE here at COC as we head into the Last Week of our Current Marriage Series! Please consider taking time to join us – it could quite possibly be LIFE-CHANGING for YOU and YOUR CURRENT/FUTURE MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIPS!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (4) A “1 CORINTHIANS” LOVE (Mat Balgaard)

 

IS IT POSSIBLE… FOR TWO PEOPLE TO ACTUALLY FALL IN LOVE… (And…)STAY IN LOVE… FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE? (Jesus Thinks YES!)

 

We always have a CHOICE in how to Respond to each other’s Intentions/Actions in our MARRIAGES… either Believing the Best or Assuming the Worst! One Breeds Conflict and the other BringsGrace/Life! (ChooseWisely!)

 

1 CORINTHIANS LOVE…

ALWAYSLooks to Protect the Integrity of our Marriage!

ALWAYSCauses us to Extend Trust to our Spouse!

ALWAYSHopes that What God has Put Together is WORTH Fighting For!

ALWAYSCauses us to Persevere in order to BE IN LOVE and STAY IN LOVE!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9:00A / 10:45A)
