This Is Love
This Is Us – Part 5
June 8-9, 2019
Dr. Jeffrey Allen Love
“We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters…Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.” 1 John 3:16,18
- Love Is Visible.
“After they arrived at Capernaum and settled in a house, Jesus asked his disciples, ‘What were you discussing out on the road?’ But they didn’t answer, because they had been arguing about which of them was the greatest.” Mark 9:33-34
“About that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?’” Matthew 18:1
- Redefine greatness
“He sat down, called the twelve disciples over to him, and said, ‘Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else.’” Mark 9:35
“‘(Jesus) …If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me.’” Mark 8:34
- Realign my attitude
“Then he put a little child among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, ‘Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not only me but also my Father who sent me.’” Mark 9:36-37
“You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had…he took the humble position of a slave…” Philippians 2:5,7b
