Sermon: “They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love”
Theme: The measure of the health and nature of the Body of Christ is love above all else.
Purpose: The congregation will affirm the need to practice our love of Christ.
Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 13 Love is patient, love is kind, love does not seek its own way.
Matthew 25:34-40 Then the king will say, “When I was hungry you fed me…”
As the Body of Christ, in what ways are we demonstrating that we are Christians? How do we stand against the definition of love given in 1 Corinthians 13? Are we arrogant, boastful, and rude? Or are we patient, kind, loving, and willing to accept each other? Is our love in practice so that we will stand the test of Matthew 25 (feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, visiting the stranger, the prisoner, and those who are alone)? Do we take the command to love as our first and most important assignment as the body of Christ?
