Sermon for 18th July 2010 - Love Matters Most

3 Laws of Love
  1. The Best use of Life is love
    • Love validates my faith
      1 John 4:8 - "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love"
    • Love integrates my life (1 Corinthians 13:1-3)
    • Love Compensates for my sin (1 Peter 4:8)
    • Love last forever (1 Corinthians 13:13)
    • horizontal - important, vertical - urgent
      Quadrant 2 - urgent but not important Quadrant 4 - important & urgent = emergency
      Quadrant 1 - not important & not urgent Quadrant 3 - important but not urgent
  2. The best expression of love is time
    • You spell Love: T-I-M-E (1 John 3:18)
    • Time is the most precious resource: only resource we cannot get back after we give it away... it is literally part of your life
  3. The best time to love is now
    • Hebrews 3:7,13,15 - Today ... not yesterday .. not tomorrow

  • What is most important? The best use of life is love
  • How do I love? The best expression of love is time
  • When do I love God and people? The best time to love is now
