Message for December 6, 2020 from Pastor Jerry

“Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to dispute over doubtful things.” Rom.14:1  “Therefore let us not judge one another anymore but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way.”  Rom. 14:13
     We are children of the Most High God, and we are to be led by His instructions given in His Word.  One of His greatest commandments is to love one another as we love ourselves.  Sadly, we expect others to follow that order towards us but find it hard to love one who offends us.
     Do we love enough to forgive someone who has offended us and hold no account of their actions against us?  Does God refuse to forgive us for a trespass and revoke our salvation if we do not live a perfect life?  God knows we can’t “perform” our life without making a mistake or sinning.  That is why He sent Jesus to die for our sins.  Jesus took our sins and nailed them to the cross so we could be freed from them. But it was the love of God that nailed Jesus to the cross. God operated the plan of our salvation, and it was His love that made it possible.  While we were yet sinners, in the fullness of time Jesus Christ died for the ungodly.
     Jesus didn’t come into the world to condemn or judge it.  He came to save it.  When we were at our worst, He loved us with His best.  I implore you believe that God loves YOU as much as He loves anyone who has lived on this earth.  If you can do that, you can love your neighbor as you love yourself.  Oh, learn to love yourself as much as God loves you.  That will bring peace that passes understanding.  It’s a wonderful life.
