No Greater Love - Relentless Love

No Greater Love Graphic 02.jpg

Jesus once told the painful story of a broken relationship between a father and son. In that story, Jesus makes it perfectly clear that God's love is not like human love. God is like a father who stands, unmoved, scanning the horizon, waiting for His lost child to come home. There is no greater love. His love is relentless. 

Foundational scripture: Luke 15; Jeremiah 31:3: John 13:34


No Greater Love - Courageous Love

Courage is the power of the mind to overcome fear. While we may feel a wave of courage on occasion, most of the time courage is a decision that we make that is in direct conflict with our emotions. The same is true of love. While we're prone to view love primarily as an emotion that we feel, Jesus shows us that love is much more often a decision - and sometimes a decision that is in direct conflict with our emotions. 

Foundational Scripture: Matthew 26:36-46, John 13:34, Hebrews 12:1-3
