Today’s point: When love rules the church, our kids see Jesus.

Matthew 16:16-18 (NIVSimon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

1. By receiving GOD’S LOVE that shine’s through Jesus.

John 13:34-35 (NIV) “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

2. By letting the love of Jesus shine through our ATTITUDE toward each other.

Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV) Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

Matthew 7:12 (NIV) So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

3. By letting the love of Jesus shine through our GIVING.

Psalm 37:26 (NLT) The godly always give generous loans to others, and their children are a blessing.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 (NLT) Send your grain across the seas,
and in time, profits will flow back to you.

1 Corinthians 16:2 (NIV) On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.

4. By letting the love of Jesus shine through our GOOD DEEDS.

Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV) “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

John 12:32 (NIV) And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”

Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Your next steps today….
I will shine God’s love by…
a) Choosing a God honoring attitude toward others.
b) Becoming a God honoring giver.
c) Doing good God honoring things for others.
