‘P,nc?uat!on. / WHAT IF WE LOVED LIKE JESUS LOVED @ THE CHURCH?

We LOVE... CONDITIONALLY!

Jesus LOVES... UNCONDITIONALLY!

(Great place to start in 'LOVING LIKE JESUS' @ the Church!)

Jesus ALWAYS put PEOPLE in front of PRACTICES when LOVING them!

We are to LOVE one another - not - LAW one another!

Jesus is the ONLY ONE who can call someone guilty of Sin or not guilty of Sin - because He's the one who died on the CROSS for their Sins!

John 8...The Adulterous Woman

1. Jesus tells her to 'Go... & Sin no more!'

-This was an ACCEPTANCE of the Woman without APPROVAL of her Sin!

2. Jesus FORGIVES THE SIN then FOCUSES ON HER FUTURE! (Go & Sin No More!)

-Basically saying "I've Forgiven You - Now Go Act Like It!"

ACTING like we’ve been FORGIVEN gives us better APPRECIATION and MOTIVATION to “SIN NO MORE” ourselves - AND... to LOVE others like Jesus @ the Church! 

See Ya Sunday!!

‘P,nc?uat!on. / WHAT DO I LACK???

Rich Young Ruler... IF THERE’S SOMETHING I LACK - THEN IT’S HOLDING ME BACK!

There is a BIG difference between walking AROUND Jesus and walking WITH Jesus!

LIVING FOR JESUS IS NOT ABOUT THE SHOW! - It doesn't matter what you think like/act like/dress like - JESUS sees through ALL of it!

LIVING FOR JESUS IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU KNOW! - The purpose of the Word of God is not about INFORMATION but about TRANSFORMATION!

I’m all for Going Deeper folks… But when you think about it - we're all EDUCATED in the BIBLE WAY BEYOND OUR LEVEL OF OBEDIENCE! (James1:22)

LIVING FOR JESUS IS ALL ABOUT THE GO!

Mark 10:21... GO (sell everything) THEN... COME - FOLLOW ME! (Get the ONE AREA you need fixing RIGHT!)

We won’t be held accountable for HOW MUCH WE HAVE DONE – but rather for HOW MUCH WE HAVE DONE OF WHAT HE’S ASKED US TO DO!!!

See Ya Sunday!!
