Series: LOVED-13
Duration: 41 mins 39 secs
Our love for others -- church members, family, neighbor, and coworkers -- will never be perfect. We will be deficient in our care. Fortunately, if we are consistent in our care, it covers a multitude of failures and missteps. The apostle Paul closes out his lovely exhortation about love, speaking of its consistent nature: bearing, trusting, hoping, and enduring all things, always. As the message will illustrate, this is easier said than done.

Jesus set aside his grief and followed his gut. A crowd had amassed, wanting his healing touch. Crowds can be demanding, feisty, fearful gatherings. This did not deter Jesus. Moved by pity, he tended their needs like a good shepherd. He provided food to feed 5000+. This miracle shows his pity moves him. It still does. He has compassion on you.

Something pitiful in us likes to close our fist, fight, and own others. Our fear of shame and fiery anger motivate us to hurt them. The detailed tabs we keep--what others owe us and how they've hurt us --feed our bitterness. Sadly, sometimes we delight in news of another's demise. Paul observed such defective, self-protective love in Corinth. He called for it to stop. Love protects others, he wrote. The principle applies today.

We tend to bend inward. Our hearts envy others, inflate our egos, and look for our own interests. This was the case in Corinth. Spiritual gifts and social groups bent the church inward. Rather than building one another up in love, they lived as rivals. We can suffer the same inward bent. Thus, Paul continues his masterpiece on love, encouraging his readers to look out for others. Love looks out for the inward bent and look outward to build up others.

Love calls us to UP our game. We may put UP and shut UP in order to build UP others. These actions are expressions of patience and kindness, two positive aspects of love expressed by the apostle Paul in his magisterial chapter on love. Moreover, these aspects of love are essential to God, modeled by Jesus, and empowered by the Spirit.

In his first recorded letter to the Corinthians, Paul addresses various issues with a fractured church. One of their great battles surrounds the misuse of spiritual gifts. Rather than building up the body of Christ, they're using them to build up their reputation. Paul interrupts his discussion on spiritual gifts to get to the heart of the matter: love. This opening sermon in the series looks at love as the mortar to make any gift or effort have lasting impact. Love is leverage.

Everywhere you go these days you hear the phrases, "Stay healthy" or "Be safe." I started tacking on the exhortation, "Stay hopeful." Then I realized, hope is not an afterthought but the core to Christian living in critical times. This sermon traces the theme of hope -- a fixed past, promised future, and God's faithfulness amid present fears -- through the book of Romans. It encourages us to refocus.

The apostle Paul was a theologian of the Cross. Jesus's scandalous death disrupted his life. He centered much of his preaching to declaring the wisdom and benefits of the Cross. This message traces the theme of the Cross through Paul's writing, encouraging us to appreciate Jesus's costly victory.

Passage: James 1:19-27
Duration: 35 mins 44 secs
The Book of James touches on some timely themes about caring for others. The brother of Jesus writes a scattered church facing hardship. He implores them to put their faith into action by showing love to the most endangered among them. Faith is not merely self-reflection, but godly action, necessary in times of need.

Series: Leverage
Duration: 43 mins 19 secs
God has given each of a platforms to leverage our influence for the benefit of others. We have platforms at work as we elevate our coworkers; at home as we elevate our children; at school where we elevate our classmates; at church where we elevate others believers. God wants us to use our platforms to uplift others not exalt ourselves. This sermon traces Jesus's method of platforming his disciples whose ministry became critical after his ascension.
