Christ Is The Answer – The Eternity of Love

      20010225 Christ Is The Answer - The Eternity Of Love - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

A good #investment is one that lasts a long time, so a great investment must be one that lasts #forever.  We are talking today about the #love of #God.  He loves us so much He sent His only Son to be a sacrifice to allow us eternal life if we repent of our sins and give Him control of our life.  If love is a gift that is eternal, does that mean that some gifts are not?  What are some of the childish things we should put away?  What does Paul mean when he says that now we see through a glass dimly?  Do any graces besides love last forever?  Is any of these graces greater than love?  How do we achieve this kind of love for God and others?

Christ Is The Answer – The Activity of Love

      20010211 Christ Is The Answer - The Activity Of Love - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

Forgive me for missing last week, we were under a #Covid #quarantine.  The world speaks of #love as a feeling, but the #Bible says that love is also an activity.  If love is just a feeling then we are not responsible for it.  But if it is an activity, we are required to make an effort.  Can we undertake this activity exclusively under our own power?  What does love prevent us from doing?  Maybe you have heard the more often quoted part of this passage that tells us what love does.  Once you have confessed your sins and given your life to Jesus, ask Him to help you work on these activities of love.

Christ Is The Answer – The Superiority of Love

After celebrating the ultimate example of God’s #love last week, let’s get back to our series , Christ is the answer.  Can #faith and #hope be ours without love?  How does love relate to the other gifts of the Holy Spirit?  The greek language had several words for love.  In this passage from First Corinthians, what does the use of agape tell us?  To show the superiority of love, Paul lists where we would be in multiple facets of life without love.  I don’t know about you but if I am suspicious of the motive of a speaker or authority figure, i will not be persuaded to follow or act.  Is love a gift or a grace?  Without love what do we have?

Does #Christmas sneak up on you, or does it take forever to come around?  It probably depends on your age.  But whatever age you are, it can be a wonderful time.  Why do you think God sent His son when He did, not sooner or later?  Any birth is a cause for celebration, but how much more exciting is the birth that split time into before and after?  The birth of Jesus Christ also fulfilled 333 prophecies in the Old Testament.  How did the birth of Jesus bring joy and peace to this world?  How about hope and love?  God came down to Earth to restore a personal relationship with us, will you accept His gift?

Why do so many people #LightUp their yards, houses, and streets in December?  From #ChristmasTrees to #parades, light shows are everywhere this time of year.  Why are these lighting events held at night?  How dark was the world when Jesus Christ arrived?  Is there still a contrast between the darkness of the world today and the Light of the world?  In addition to the darkness of sin, what other things did the arrival of Jesus defeat?  The angels appeared to the shepherds in dazzling light with a message of good news and yet, the shepherds had to be told to ‘fear not.’  Why?  What can we learn from their response?

Christmas Wonder

Why did most of the world not recognize the #Messiah, the #Savior when He came to #Earth?  When you don’t read #God’s #Word to find out what He says about Himself, you can miss the #truth.  The world needs now as then a Comforter and a solution to the problem of sin.  How did God supernaturally reveal and simultaneously protect His Son?  Is there a special light that still guides us to Jesus Christ?  Given the dangerous journey that the wisemen undertook to find the Lord, shouldn’t we be more diligent to seek out and attend church?  What can we learn about worship from the example of the wisemen?  Was there significance in the gifts they brought?  Are there still any wise men and women out there?

As we begin the #Advent season, counting down the days until #Christmas, let’s take a closer look at the meaning behind this worldwide holiday.  Is it about presents or parties?  Well, without God’s gift of His Son to this world as payment for our wrongdoings none of this would be happening.  Brother Tommy uses Hebrews 2 to give us the full weight of the importance of this incredible event in history.  What can we learn about the God-man who came about this time of year?  Why was He born to die?  How did Jesus destroy the accuser?  How does He conquer the tempter?  What do we mean when we say that Christ has defeated sin?  Where does that leave us in regards to our relationship with God?  So who got delivered by this miraculous Christmas arrival?

Thanksgiving Through Thanksliving

      19971123 Thanksgiving Through Thanksliving - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

The book of #Psalms is full of examples and exhortations of giving #thanks to the #Lord.  Here in #America, we have a national holiday dedicated to #Thanksgiving.  But it is a biblical practice for all Christians around the world.  I was reading Psalm 100 today and verses 4 and 5 say, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise!  Give thanks to Him;  bless His name!  For the Lord is good;  His steadfast love endures forever, and His faithfulness to all generations.”  

Brother Tommy is focusing today on Psalm 116.  What are four ways listed in the Psalm that we can use to offer up thanksgiving to the Lord?  How can we show our thanks to the Lord beyond lip service?  How often should we show our gratefulness?  Even on a rough day, we can find something for which to be thankful.  Why would God command this and how is it for our good?  If you proclaim your thankfulness but live like you have been slighted or wronged, are you truly thanksliving?
