Sermon Title: Hope-Faith-Love summary
Worship service date: August 26, 2018
Interim Pastor Thomas Hiltsley
Primary Bible verses:
1st Corinthians 13:13
Key sermon points:
- Hope is the Promise that sustains us.
- Faith is the Power that moves us to obey Jesus and live the Christ life together.
- Love is the Practice or Practical experience.
These are the character traits of the Resurrection Life of Jesus. They come only from Jesus. They should press us to our knees together in prayer. They are the traits of a living Christian church, the kind of church we want and need.
Only the living presence of the Holy Spirit can stir to life the HOPE of Heaven that is ours in Jesus; and give to us the FAITH that will enable us to obey Him. Real, simple and faithful obedience to Jesus will mean that we LOVE God above all else, and act in LOVE toward each other in our church.
