Sun Am Worship                                           God is Love!        

Text: Gen 41:1:49 (King James Version)

  "Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."

                            The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
2. C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;

   In order for us to fully understand the meaning of Love, We must look to the author of Love. "Jehovah God"  For God is Love!

I do not personally know what each of you are going through right now But God does and he Cares when no one else seems to care!

1 John 4:7   Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

1 John 4:8   He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

1 John 4:9   In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:10   Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

1 John 4:11   Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

1 John 4:12   No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

1 John 4:13   Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

love is the very nature of God. And God's nature defines what is real. If you want to "get real," you are going to have "to love and be loved in return." And it is about sin, "a multitude of sins." Admittedly, as Christians we don't use that word much anymore, especially when talking about our own attitudes and actions.  We prefer other people sin; we just make mistakes. I would love to see a cartoon of a man sitting in a confessional saying, "I am sorry, Father. For I Have made some mistakes." And the priest says, "I'm sorry too. We forgive sins here, not mistakes."

 

"We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

Love does not deny sin or hide it or conceal it. It does not mean that you bury your head in the sand and ignore the hurtful thing that is going on around you, perhaps by people you love and trust. Nor does love eliminate the consequences of sin. Love restores the relationship to what it was before sin damaged it

 

1:) Love found a way in the life of Adam and Eve when Sin separated their relationship in the Garden to cover their nakedness!

 

Genesis 3:21   Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.  Without shedding of blood there is no remission of Sin Heb 9:22

 

2:) Love found a way in the family of Noah when God was about to destroy the earth.

 

Genesis 6:7   And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

 

Genesis 6:11   The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

Genesis 6:8   But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

 

3:) Love found a way to deliver the Israelites out of Egyptian bondage!

 

Exodus 3:13   And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?

Exodus 3:14   And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

Exodus 3:15   And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

 

 

4:) Love found a way to deliver Joseph out of the pit! Out of the Prison, and into the Palace!

Genesis 41:39-44
Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you.
You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you."
So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt." Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph's finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. He had him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command, and men shouted before him, "Make way!" Thus he put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt

 

5:)  Love found a way to deliver Daniel from the Den!

 

Daniel 6:20   And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?

Daniel 6:21   Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.

Daniel 6:22   My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.

 

6:) Love found a way for the three Hebrew boys in the Furnace!

 

Daniel 3:22   Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

Daniel 3:23   And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

Daniel 3:24   Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.

Daniel 3:25   He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

 

 

 

7:) Love found a way to re-direct a runaway prophet to Nineveh in the form of an underwater taxi!

 

Jonah 1:17   Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

 

8:) Love found a way on Calvary when the only begotten of God paid a debt he didn't owe and one you and I could not possible pay!

 

John 3:16   For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

John 15:13   Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

 

The Bible states in

1 Peter 4:7   But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

1 Peter 4:8   And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

1 Peter 4:9   Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

 

I believe we are living in the Last of the last hours as we know it here on Earth!

2 Timothy 3:1   This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 Timothy 3:2   For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2 Timothy 3:3   Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2 Timothy 3:4   Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

2 Timothy 3:5   Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

 

Matthew 24:7   For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Matthew 24:8   All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Matthew 24:9   Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

 

Matthew 24:10   And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

 

You say pastor you don't know what I am going through You maybe right But God does! Love will find a way!

Psalms 34:19   Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

 

1 John 3:14   We know that we have passed from death unto life, because

we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

1 John 3:15   Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know

that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

1 John 3:16   Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down

his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

1 John 3:17   But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother

have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how

dwelleth the love of God in him?

 

1 John 4:20   If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother,

he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how

can he love God whom he hath not seen?

1 John 4:21   And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth

God love his brother also.

 

You say pastor you don't know what I am going through You maybe right But God does! Love will find a way!

Psalms 34:19   Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

 

Perfect love cast out fear

 

1 John 4:18   There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
