Sermon Sketch | “Love is the Support Structure for our Faith in Jesus”

Love is the Support Structure for our Faith in Jesus

1 Corinthians 13
(Esp. vv. 1-3)

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Three Consequences for Living without Love.

  1. Without Love our TALENTS are USELESS.
  2. Without love our FAITH is MEANINGLESS.
  3. Without love our SERVICE is POINTLESS.

Five Ways God’s Love Affects our lives.

  1. God’s love CLARIFIES the way we THINK.
  2. God’s love TRANSFORMS the way we LIVE.
  3. God’s love CHANGES the way we SEE.
  4. God’s love CONSTRAINS the way we BEHAVE.
  5. God’s love ALTERS the way we HEAR.
