Bits and Bytes

Posted by Rick on October 23, 2007

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday’s sermon: Love in Action, I John 3:16-18:

  • Jesus laid down his life (literally) for us
    • He left the presence of God
    • He abandoned the form of God
    • He suffered and bled and died for us
  • We should lay down our lives for others
  • Jesus left his comfort zone for us; why can’t we spend 20 minutes doing something nice for someone else?
  • If we don’t actually die for someone, we can sacrifice our time or our effort. 
  • Practical ways we can do that include:
    • listening
    • speaking truth, speaking encouragement
    • serving others
    • going beyond what is expected of us
  • Don’t just TELL someone you love them; SHOW them!
