"Do Everything In Love" from 1 Corinthians 16:1-24
And, baby dedication of Josiah Adonairam Cada, son of Luke Cada and Abigail Cada.
Give because you love, and without string attached.
Not just tithes and offering, but in everything.
On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.
1 Corinthians 16:2
Looking back to what Paul said we should give in Love.
Romans 12:13 (NIV)
13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
Hebrews 6:10 (NIV)
10 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
1 John 3:17 (NIV)
17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?
Jesus used His time to visit His people.
Time is limited and we need to be wise in using it.
If you can see families in troubles care for them.
Paul honors his time with our Lord. He is sensitive to God's leading, and do everything in Love. He also experience spiritual attack. But we are conquerors for Christ JESUS.
Not Survivors But Conquerors.
We have lots of enemy in this world from Satan.
Timothy means dear to God.
We need to be concern to ministries.
Ministry is not just using people, it is loving people.
Apollos was one of the minister.
We need to get along with each other.
1 Corinthians 16:12 Now about our brother Apollos: I strongly urged him to go to you with the brothers. He was quite unwilling to go now, but he will go when he has the opportunity.
Love and not manipulate.
Do everything in love.
1 Corinthians 16:14
Stand firm in faith and persevere with your work with JESUS. Do not depend on the leadership of the one above you.
1 Corinthians 16:22-24 If anyone does not love the Lord--a curse be on him. Come, O Lord!
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.
My love to all of you in Christ Jesus. Amen.
