God's Love For Others

God's Love For Others

God loves the whole world, and he shows us that love through Jesus Christ. Jesus gave himself to us, everything that he has, so we could live forever. God desires that we love each other that same way. In Romans 12, he calls on each Christian to show love to other Christians, the the people who are mean to us, and to the lowly.

Romans 12:9-21

Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

God Is Unsearchable and Inscrutable

God Is Unsearchable and Inscrutable

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

  “For who has known the mind of the Lord,

   or who has been his counselor?”

  “Or who has given a gift to him

   that he might be repaid?”

For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. 
Romans 11:33-36

God is beyond our understanding, because he is infinite, all-powerful, and all-knowing. How could human beings even begin to understand anything so foreign to our world. Because he is unsearchable, we know that we can only know about him from how he reveals himself to us through Jesus Christ. Listen to the sermon to hear more about God’s inscrutable wisdom for us.
