FINDING LOVE: 1 John 3:16a

MAIN POINTS:

  • Essential questions
  • What is authentic love?
  • Where can I find it?
  • Love is about Christ
  • Love is about the Cross


REMEMBER:

  • John – there is a way: Christ & the Cross
  • What does His love mean?
  • Searches for you: Samaritan Woman – unexpected
  • Saves you: repentant thief – great price


EXTRA:

‘The heart of Christ became like a reservoir in the midst of the mountains. All the tributary streams of iniquity, and every drop of the sins of his people, ran down and gathered into one vast lake, deep as hell and shoreless as eternity. All these met, as it were, in Christ’s heart, and he endured them all.’ C.H. Spurgeon

‘We are never nearer Christ than when we find ourselves lost in a holy amazement at His unspeakable love.’ John Owen

‘The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference’     Ellie Wiesel
