This weekend was our second weekend of our LOVE series at C3! We are believing God for a Love Revolution in our community! Matt preached a powerful message on love from 1 Corinthians 13:4. If you missed this weekend’s message you can watch it here and listen to it here.
We also had our annual SYATP (See You at the Pole) Rally on Sunday night with hundreds of C3 students and students from other local churches. Pastor Mike Haman, who is on staff at Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, LA with Pastor Dino and DeLynn Rizzo, came and spoke a powerful message to our students on living in the spirit!This Wednesday morning, students at schools around the country will be joining at their flagpoles 30 minutes before the bell rings to pray for their friends, school, homes, and government. I want to encourage all parents to join their students this Wednesday as they take a stand for Christ at their schools!
Throughout this series we are encouraging everyone to do random acts of kindness throughout the week to spread the love of Jesus throughout the community! Also, throughout this series our Connect Groups are reading Love Revolution by Joyce Meyer. This book is available in the Source and it will radically change the way you look at love!
1 Corinthians 13:4 “Love is patient. Love is kind.”
Real Love is Patient. Patience means to bear pain or trials calmly or without complaint.
Proverbs 15:18, “A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.”(NIV)
Challenges to being patient…
We are all different.
Some people are hard to love.
We want our way.
We want it now.
Real Love is Kind.
Ephesians 4:31-32, “Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”(NLT)
Hebrews 10:24-25, “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”(NLT)
