Living Life in the Love of God, May 17 Sermon Quotes

Sunday Sermon Quotes from Bishop Johnson, Sunday, May 17, 2009

Scripture References:
I John 3: 1-3, I John 3: 14-16, I John 4: 6-12.

  • Love is a realm
  • The realm of love is not subject to the natural world
  • It's a realm where you can experience God continually.
  • It's where faith becomes natural, where faith becomes understandable.
  • You will not live a life of love accidentally. You have to choose. Making a choice to love, sometimes you have to do it everyday, several times a day.
  • Christ died for us, we must live for Him. (I John 3:16)
  • Most precious words: "I love you," "I forgive you."
  • Love will paralyze fear.
  • Love is a realm where fear has no power.
  • The only cure for a painful environment is to allow God to love it away.
  • Love is not an action, it's a dimension.
  • When you love your enemies, you provide a conduit for God to love them.
  • You have to be in the right posture, the right realm for miracles.
  • Perfect love casts out fear ((I John 4:18)
  • You are committed only to the degree that you are committed to love.

Deacon Barry and Deaconess Sharon Moore,

I love the way you have shown your love for the people of 34 and 39 by setting up this blog page, showing pictures of your events and giving us God's word for encouragement and knowledge.
What a Blessing! Thanks for visiting me when I was sick and for the communion. I know that because of your love for the brethen you will not mind me thanking Deacon Finney, Brother Johnson and Sister Epps for the hospital visits and communion. During the three and 1/2 months of my recovery from surgery I felt the love.
