Cultivating Love in the Midst of Market Style Exchanges.

Its happening again!  A message series is coming to a culmination!  I’m always surprised by this.  I think to myself, “10 Commandments for 10 weeks” and then poof, the 10 weeks are complete.  “9 weeks on Fruit o the Spirit” and then poof, the 9 weeks are complete… Sure enough, our message series on the Fruit of the Spirit culminates this week with the fruit of Love.  

This fruit is the glue that holds all of the fruit together.  It’s true that God is Love.  We begin Sunday with looking to out God, who is love and love is what he does.  Love is God’s centrality and his character.  Then we will quickly move on to exploring the impact and call of God’s love on our lives together.  

1 Corinthians 13:13 says, “Faith, hope and love are lasting – but the greatest of these is love.”  Galatians 5:6 says, “The only thing that counts is faith made effective through love.”  Colossians 3:14 says, “Above all… put on love that binds everything together in a bond of perfection.”  

Love isn’t simply a virtue – it is the center from which all virtues spring.  

Looking forward to Sunday – Jeff will join the worship team this Sunday – looking forward to that too!  Title of message for Sunday, Cultivating Love in the Midst of Market Style Exchanges.  See you soon,

Pastor Mark
