Life in the Church

"Living by Love"

(1 Thessalonians 4:3-10)

Sunday, August 25, 2019

Love is a two-way street.  When you love someone, you are willing to sacrifice for them and they are willing to sacrifice for you.

People often question why a Christian would want obey the teachings of Jesus.  It can sound like a bunch of rules and regulations.

The foundation of a believer’s desire to follow the teachings of Jesus is to demonstrate their love for Him and His provision for them.  1 John 4:19 summarizes it well, “We love Him because He first loved us” (ESV).   Romans 5:8 shows how God extended His love to mankind.  “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Join us this coming Sunday, August 25.  We will look at 1 Thessalonians 4:3-10 as we discover what our reciprocal love for Jesus means for living life in a way that pleases Jesus and honors Him for His love displayed toward us.  Our Sunday worship begins at 9:30 am  at 740 N. 129th Street in Omaha, NE.  We would love to have you worship with us.  Hope to see you Sunday!
