Fourth Sunday in Advent 2019 - Love (John 14:15-24)Tim Douglass, December 22, 2019
Part of the Advent 2019 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
As we reach the fourth Sunday of Advent we are talking about love. In a lot of ways love is very tightly bound with Christmas, both in the Christmas story itself and in the bigger picture of what it meant for Jesus to come to earth. Love is also a concept that is liberally sprinkled throughout God’s word in many different contexts and with many different implications. Jesus tells us that if we love Him we will keep His commandments, but how do we translate that into our daily lives?
|« Third Sunday in Advent 2019 - Joy||None||1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 »|
15If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. (KJV)
