WATCH

Love2Live2Love – most people want that in concept. But in reality, most of us find ourselves not loving as God would have us. We want to…but we don’t. In today’s sermon, we will be equipped with scriptural tools to overcome the obstacles of grace. Grace is continuing to love even when offended.

Matthew 5:38-48

Mercy Over Judgment | Vertical Living: [09]

WATCH

Christ followers are not just responsible for what they do – but also for the impression they give. This week will be a paradigm shift for each of us as we transition from an easy and average perspective of judgment to one of mercy. Mercy is diffi cult and must be learned – because where it is absent, God is blasphemed, Satan will gain a foothold and Christianity becomes a joke.

WATCH

Offense is an obstacle to love. And the cost of unresolved offense is great. For this cause, God takes it very seriously. No matter your personality, the prescription for resolution is universal. God is the resource and reason for loving others. Matthew 5:21-47

WATCH

What is your love story as it pertains to love for God? Jesus said, the sincerity of your love for God is on display in the record of your actions toward the person in your life you find hardest to love. As followers of Christ we do this willingly and gladly. And while love is not the only thing that matters – it is the method to accomplish everything that does.


Love: The Greatest Thing
Matthew 22:34-40

WATCH

Loving Jesus means keeping his commandments – and most of them are about loving our neighbors. Loving others is loving Jesus because He commands it – and it leads to a deeper experience with Him.

Vertical Living | Love Gone Wrong: [04]
June 28, 2020 | Featured | Series, Sermons, Vertical Living, Verticality

WATCH

You cannot live – really live – until you love God. Love to live! And you cannot really love God unless that shows up in your loving of one another. God has given each of us the capacity to love. Vertical love is God before me. Horizontal love is you before me. But as with anything, the enemy has something else in mind.

Satan can’t create anything – he just takes the beautiful things that God has created – twists them and attempts to use them to destroy us. One such twisting is taking a love for God & others and converting it to “legalism.” Maybe you have been the recipient of a pointed finger or found yourself with the “three pointed back at you.”

In Vertical Living, God will take you to the mat with the full weight of all that He is. Watch and learn how to LOVE2LIVE2LOVE.

WATCH

You cannot live – really live – until you love God. Love to live! And you cannot really love God unless that shows up in your loving of others.

In fact, the two are so closely interrelated that God is not interested in our expressions of love when we have hatred in our hearts toward another person – especially another one of His children, and most especially those of God’s family who are hardest of all to love.

In Vertical Living, God will take you to the mat with the full weight of all that He is… watch and learn how to LOVE2LIVE2LOVE.
