(the video begins with the sermon)
Scripture shared: John 15:15-17, Psalm 103, 136, Colossians 3:1-17.
We are growing together to know what it means to follow Jesus. If we are following Him we are following the Father. Jesus’ desire is for each one of us to KNOW the Father and to be drawn into a full and beautiful relationship with the Father. Jesus’ command is to love each other, so obedience is all about living a life of love. Then we will begin the journey of knowing God’s love for us. When we learn to love like the Lord Jesus, His Spirit creates the way to remain in Him.
You are God’s chosen people. You are holy and dearly loved. So put on tender mercy and kindness as if they were your clothes. Don’t be proud. Be gentle and patient. Put up with one another. Forgive one another if you are holding something against someone. Forgive, just as the Lord forgave you. And over all these good things put on love. Love holds them all together perfectly as if they were one.Colossians 3:12-14
