Sermon: “We Are Called to Love”
Theme: The people of God learn to put love first as they offer a message of healing that the world does not understand.
Purpose: To learn love with the power of humility.
Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 Love is patient, kind, never boastful or rude.
Luke 4:21-30 Doubtless you will say to me, “Physician, heal thyself.” Jesus confronts unbelief among his own community.
What does it mean to truly love as God commands us to love? What does it mean to love with humility, compassion, and grace? In what ways does love call us to seek healing and reconciliation for others? How do we learn to practice loving in a way that shines light of hope to the world? In what ways are Paul’s teachings of love in 1 Corinthians 13 a challenge for Christians to demonstrate their knowledge of God in all relationships?
