to find true love?
Scripture: Romans 5: 6-8
when we were still without strength, in due time Christ
died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet
perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His
own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ
died for us.
I. Today people are becoming more and more unfamiliar
with “love”, even though they deeply long for love.
The “great commandment” in the bible reveals the fundamental void of mankind.
For love He died, for love He was wounded, and for love He was despised
4. For whom did Christ die? For you and me, …. for sinners!
5. Qualities of sinners
Essence: Still sinners
The worldly love that we are familiar with
man—distinguished by right vs. wrong, good vs. evil
man—distinguished by personal preference, friend vs. foe
The love of Christ from the cross—the
love which we never knew
Love that transcends
worldly love which based on bias and choices
Love that is unconditional
without any prerequisite
Love that is completely
free of hatred
8. The death of Christ—what
did he do?
The strongest became
The godliest became the
one deserted by God and man
The most holy became
the one cursed
9. Christ’s suffering and us
accepted death, went through death, and overcame death!
Those who trust in Him have
everything In Christ
The power that pierced through death—God is love!
“It’s Love”，O “Jesus Loves You”
