This year for Good Friday, Pastor Steve Beaulieu teaches on the standard of love set by God when He allowed His son to be crucified. In the book of Hosea, God instructs His prophet to marry a prostitute so they would understand how the Lord feels when His bride is unfaithful to Him. This is difficult for us, as a culture, with exclusivity; Jesus is the only way.
God’s definition of love is revealed in John 15: “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” And then in Romans 5, “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Love is the prerequisite, and we are nothing without it. The love of God and the fruit of the spirit is agape love, which is volitional, self-sacrificing, and divine! Don’t let being a Christian and coming to church be because of religion, let it be because of love!
John 15:13, 18-20
1 Corinthians 13:1-3
