Ken Fong - Life Together - 081130

  1. 1. If I Have Not Love
  2. 3. <ul><li>1 Cor 13     And now I will show you the most excellent way. 1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love , I am only a resounding gong or a clanging symbol. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love , I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love , I gain nothing. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Nothing Without Love
  4. 5. <ul><li>“ A loving heart is the beginning of all knowledge.” </li></ul><ul><li>-- Thomas Carlyle </li></ul><ul><li>“ Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other.” </li></ul><ul><li>-- Euripedes </li></ul>
  5. 6. Where Does Love Come From? <ul><li>7-10 My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn't know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can't know him if you don't love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they've done to our relationship with God. 1John 4:7-10 (MSG) </li></ul>
  6. 7. Naughty and Nice <ul><li>All the Naughty kids got presents! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not the ones they wanted but they each still got a present </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Knew someone cared about them </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unconditional LOVE began to change them </li></ul></ul><ul><li>God’s love for sinners can change us all too </li></ul>
  7. 8. Love’s Amazing Power <ul><li>  11-12 My dear, dear friends, if God loved us like this, we certainly ought to love each other. No one has seen God, ever. But if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and his love becomes complete in us—perfect love! 1John 4:11-12 (MSG) </li></ul>
