We started a new message series yesterday, “HE LOVES ME – HE LOVES ME NOT.“ The reason why I named it that way is because of our understanding of God’s love for us. Unfortunately, our understanding of it is as bad as a coin toss. Churches are filled with people who still think God is mad at them. The more I attempt to wrap my mind around the grace of God toward us, the more I discover that the motivation behind His grace is simply pure LOVE for us!
I will submit that our greatest challenge as human beings is the discovery of this truth. Salvation is not attained without it and the ability to work out that very salvation is contingent on it. How we act, perform and live out our lives in God’s Kingdom is determined by the understanding of Gods’ grace and love for us.
In the message series, I explain the difference between Peter and John before the Day of Pentecost. How one operated in grace and the other under the law…how one had a revelation of love and the other of performance. If truth be known, we are either a Peter or a John. Which one are you?
Our team should have the podcast and video uploaded by Wednesday. I gave them the day off today. They came from a seven-day workweek last week. And the older I’m getting the more I’m understanding what REST really is.
