December 21, 2014 Speaker: Series: Reclaiming Christmas
Topic: Advent and Christmas Verse: Mark 12:30–12:31
Pastor Duane Cross | 12.21.14
“And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” - Mark 12:30-31 (NLT)
“For the commandments say, ‘You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not covet.’ These—and other such commandments—are summed up in this one commandment: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills the requirements of God’s law.” - Romans 13:9-10 (NLT)
WHAT DOES LOVE REQUIRE OF ME?
3 Statements to clarify this truth:
1) Don’t do anything that will hurt you.
2) Don’t do anything that will hurt someone else.
3) Don’t be mastered by anything.
