Irresistible Love

John 13:35

~ John 13:34     A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

 

Vision Statement ~ To be God’s People, transformed by the Gospel of Christ into an Irresistible Community of Love, Discipleship, and Service.

 

The Irresistible Love of Jesus Focuses on others!

~ Philippians 2:3-4                   Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

 

~ I Corinthians 13:4-5               Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,

 

 

The Irresistible Love of Jesus Forgives others!

~ Luke 23:34                But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.

 

~ Ephesians 4:32          Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

 

Forgiving Love makes four promises:

~ promises never to think about the incident again.

 

~ promises never to talk to anyone else about the incident.

 

~ promises never to bring the incident up and use it against you.

 

~ promises never to allow the incident to hinder our personal relationship.

 

 

The Irresistible Love of Jesus remains Faithful.

~ Luke 17:4                              And if he sins against you seven times a day, and returns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ forgive him.”

 

~ II Timothy 2:13                     If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.

 

~ I Corinthians 13:7-8a bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails;
