My Church Filled With God’s Power | The Power of Mutual Ministry
Text: 1 Corinthians 13:4-6
1A) The absence of True Love is the result loving myself too much or you too little. (vv.4-6)
2A) The Mirage of Self-Love: If only I had _______________________, I would be satisfied.
#1: My Self-Love is why I sin and why I love my sin.
#2: Every moment, I am choosing Self-Love or True Love.
#3: External expressions of Self-Love are really the expressions of my broken heart.
#4: Out of the abundance of my heart, my mouth/actions speak.
#5: My Self-Love wears many self-deceiving masks.
#6: External attempts to cover my heart will fail.
#7: My heart is a reminder of how much I need the saving power of Christ.
3A) The Miracle of True Love: I have the love of Christ-I have everything!
Those filled with True Love…
• Stick around to minister to other broken, sinful hearts;
• Demonstrate humility by growing in the love of Christ.
