Love One Another 6 9 7 2008

  2. 2. John 15:9-12 (NLT) <ul><li>9 &quot;I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. </li></ul><ul><li>10 When you obey me, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father and remain in his love. </li></ul>
  3. 3. John 15:9-12 (NLT) <ul><li>11 I have told you this so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! </li></ul><ul><li>12 I command you to love each other in the same way that I love you. </li></ul>
  4. 4. 1 John 4:7-11 (NLT) <ul><li>7 Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is born of God and knows God. </li></ul><ul><li>8 But anyone who does not love does not know God—for God is love. </li></ul><ul><li>9 God showed how much he loved us by sending his only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 1 John 4:7-11 (NLT) <ul><li>10 This is real love. It is not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. </li></ul><ul><li>11 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Matthew 7:12 (NLT) <ul><li>12 &quot;Do for others what you would like them to do for you. This is a summary of all that is taught in the law and the prophets. </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Difference <ul><li>Christianity = Freedom </li></ul><ul><li>Religion = Bondage </li></ul>
  8. 8. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>1 So Christ has really set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don't get tied up again in slavery to the law. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>2 Listen! I, Paul, tell you this: If you are counting on circumcision to make you right with God, then Christ cannot help you. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>3 I'll say it again. If you are trying to find favor with God by being circumcised, you must obey all of the regulations in the whole law of Moses. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>4 For if you are trying to make yourselves right with God by keeping the law, you have been cut off from Christ! You have fallen away from God's grace. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>5 But we who live by the Spirit eagerly wait to receive everything promised to us who are right with God through faith. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>6 For when we place our faith in Christ Jesus, it makes no difference to God whether we are circumcised or not circumcised. What is important is faith expressing itself in love. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>7 You were getting along so well. Who has interfered with you to hold you back from following the truth? </li></ul><ul><li>8 It certainly isn't God, for he is the one who called you to freedom. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>9 But it takes only one wrong person among you to infect all the others—a little yeast spreads quickly through the whole batch of dough! </li></ul>
  16. 16. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>10 I am trusting the Lord to bring you back to believing as I do about these things. God will judge that person, whoever it is, who has been troubling and confusing you. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>11 Dear brothers and sisters, if I were still preaching that you must be circumcised—as some say I do—why would the Jews persecute me? The fact that I am still being persecuted proves that I am still preaching salvation through the cross of Christ alone. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Galatians 5:1-12 (NLT) <ul><li>12 I only wish that those troublemakers who want to mutilate you by circumcision would mutilate themselves. </li></ul>
  19. 19. This <ul><li>is </li></ul><ul><li>Christianity! </li></ul>
  20. 20. Galatians 5:13 (NLT) <ul><li>13 For you have been called to live in freedom—not freedom to satisfy your sinful nature, but freedom to serve one another in love. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Galatians 5:14 (NLT) <ul><li>14 For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: &quot;Love your neighbor as yourself.&quot; </li></ul>
  22. 22. Galatians 5:15 (NLT) <ul><li>15 But if instead of showing love among yourselves you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another. </li></ul>
  23. 23. The Question! <ul><li>Are you living in Freedom? </li></ul><ul><li>The freedom that allows you to serve others in love. </li></ul><ul><li>or </li></ul><ul><li>Are you living in the bondage of religion, consumed with yourself and what others think of you? </li></ul>
