What Is Love, Anyway?

February 13th, 2010 Posted in family, Pastor's corner, sermons, worldview

Guys! Don’t forget that this Sunday is Valentine’s Day!

This Sunday, I will speak about what real love is. We will specifically talk about our love for God and how that should express itself.

Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). It’s one thing to talk about love, it’s another to show it.

The Ten Commandments

We are in the second part of a new series I am calling Worldview: How to Think and Live Biblically. And we will be wrapping up our look at the first four Commandments.

Have you ever had “another god before the Lord,” or even a “graven image”? What about “taking the Lord’s name in vain”? I suggest to you that those things are done more often than you might think.

Finally, what about the Sabbath? When is it? Are we required as Christians to keep it?

We will talk about all of this and more, this Sunday at Harvest.

Our services are at 7:45 A.M., 9:45 A.M., and 11:45 A.M. And it will also be webcast live at Harvest.org.

How to divorce-proof your marriage

If you get a chance, you may want to check out my column at WorldNetDaily this weekend. I talk about divorce-proofing your marriage.

Here is a quote from that article:

“If  you want to have a successful marriage, then read the fine print of what the Bible says. Don’t say your vows until you are ready to live by them. A successful marriage is the result of attention to detail. Every marriage will be tested. And if you let things go, it will begin to unravel.”

    Thanks pastor Greg for not watering down the Gospel. I think it is truly essential for this world including the Christian world what true love.
    It seems sometimes that love is always discussed in terms of lust and it can only be fulfilled in marriage. I wish you would could relate more to young adults and their difficulties in life trying to serve than people who are married.

    Me n’ the hubby were blessed by the kickoff message of WORLDVIEW. After watching live online, we immediately discussed and applied the teaching, asking ourselves what idols we were putting before God. Then we prayed and repented from those idols, and are trying to be mindful throughout the week. VERY excited about WORLDVIEW. Now more than ever we Christians need bold teaching that challenges us to look in the mirror! REQUEST, Pastor Greg… as you continue this series, and at the end of each message, please consider leading believers in a prayer of repentance based on that day’s teaching (in addition to praying with people who want to repent and accept Christ for the first time). Encouraging us Christians to examine our hearts regularly to ID and turn from sin in so important. Thank you, again, for touching so many lives!!!

    Just shared your WorldNetDaily marriage commentary with my entire email list. Thanks, Pastor Greg! Last week’s Worldview message was AWESOME. After watching it live online, me n’ the hubby did immediate life application and asked each other as Christians what the idols are or can be in our lives, then prayed to God about these things and repented where needed. REQUEST: At the end of your sermons in this series, would you give us CHRISTIANS a chance to examine our hearts on-the-spot, then lead a special prayer to repent of the sins we discover as a result of hearing that day’s message? This would be in addition to alter calls to non-believers. Regularly examining our hearts and lives and repenting sincerely where needed as Christians is vital! I know you would agree. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Keep leading and challenging us! Lazy Christianity is simply not an option for me anymore!!
