Love part #2

Pastor Jim Huthmaker



1.  Faith works by love. Galatians 5:6  

2.  God loves us because He is love. 1 John 4:7-9

      A.  We don’t have to strive to get God’s love, we already have it but we have to understand it and have knowledge of it to live it.

2 Peter 1:1-8

Peter used the term knowledge 5 times in the above scripture.                                                                                      

We have to have the knowledge of God.

How do we get that knowledge? By studying and meditating on His word.


3.  To know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge. Ephesians 3:19

We must believe, receive and step out and act on what we believe and have received.


4.  How can a holy God live through an unholy person? John 4:24

We are a holy temple of God. God works through us spirit to spirit.


5.  When people do not see who they are in Christ, it leads to unbelief and then not understanding God’s love.                         2 Corinthians 5:17-19

6.  We are new creatures. It is through Jesus that we have grace and righteousness.


7.  Jesus took every sin to the cross- past, present and future.


8.  The old prophets prophesied about Jesus. 1 Peter 1:10-12


9.  We are reconciled through Jesus.
