Return sermon shared on Friday, September 11, 2015.
The first calling of mankind is to receive the love of God. Yes, we are to love God and to love people, but this is only possible as we receive God’s love.
In this lesson we look at ways to continually receive the love of God. We go to Philippians Chapter 3 and look at Paul’s past life of legalism that he counted but dung and traded for a life of Faith of Jesus Christ. Paul forgot about his past religious life and looked to the future as he pressed toward the mark of Jesus Christ. Faith works by love, and as we let go of our self-righteousness and live the life of faith, we can open up our hearts to continually receive the love of God daily in our lives.
