God’s Love (Part 10) Love Covers A Multitude of Sins (cont.)
For the Last few months I have been teaching on God’s love. I trust it has been a blessing to you.
In our last message I talked about the fact that ‘Love covers a multitude of sins.’
Today I will continue to teach on this.
1 Peter 4:8 (NIV) Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
Like I said before, the Apostle Peter teaches us the following:
1) Humans are flawed (ourselves included).
2) What makes it difficult to love others is: their faults, flaws and sins.
3) The love of God can empower us to LOVE others in spite of their faults and failures. Because this is what God does for us.
Here are a few highlights from this week’s message:
— We are all going through changes and we all are seeking to grow, so we have to love each other through the changes and through the growth.
— We need to cover each other’s weaknesses with our love.
— Love allows us to look past the sins of others.
— When you are dealing with person who is Born-Again, you are dealing with a person who is forgiven before God.
— Jesus already forgave them of their sin.
— When the Father looks at them, He sees them forgiven, washed and clean.
— He then expects us to deal with them the way HE SEES THEM!
— Just like God forgave us, He expects us to forgive… and forgive… and forgive!
Get inspired to do as God commands and love others the way He loves you!
Get inspired to spend time praying for others and covering them in love!
Get inspired to do what you are called to do: LOVE in spite of!
Until next time, stay in spited.
