The Love of God

Fittingly the hymn the worship leader picked for this morning was "The Love of God."  This is a beautiful song and one I like to sing.

"The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell
It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell."

Sermon notes

Did you ever embarrass your parents?
How many times do we embarrass God?
How much do we fail?
How much does God love us?

John 3:16  God is head-over-heels in love with us; so much so that He gave his only begotton Son to die for our atonement.

What kind of people does God love?
We were the lowest of the low.  God worked out a plan of salvation.  We were born in sin; Jesus died to save us from our sin.

John 3:1  The children of God
God loved us so much that He adopted us.  We are His children!

Jeremiah 31:5  God loves us with an eternal love.

Romans 8:35 Nothing can separate us from God's love.
When we begin to be conformed to the image of Christ we begin to look, act, and think like Him.
God does not want us to remain in sin.
He wants us to be better than we are.
Make the decision to live for Him.  God loves you!
