How Much The Lord Has Done

“O that men would praise the Lord for his lovingkindness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! (Psalm 107:21).
Living around the area of Galilee was a man in terrible shape. He was controlled by demons who caused him to become deranged so that he could not live among people. They gave him extraordinary strength, but this strength was not a good thing. Naked, he walked among the tombs. He mutilated himself, bruising himself with stones. He cried out.


Around the Cross We See THE MOCKING SOLDIERS

Matthew 27:27, 31
27 – Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers. 31 – And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.


What Does Love Look Like?

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God” (I John 4:7).
Our culture defines love as “what makes me feel good.” That covers a range of things from a new car, a favorite treat, doing good deeds, and being treated as special.
John tells us that love is from God and those who love know God. We are to love one another. What does godly love look like? We are going to go to I Corinthians 13:4-8a and look at the characteristics of love.
