Summer of Love!                                                         July 8th - August 26th

 

Summary:  Our God is a God of love.  Indeed, God IS love.  From the formation of the universe and all of creation, through to the end of time we see God’s love.  Through it all we often forget God’s love, fail to understand it or fail to act on it, and yet out of our failures and with God’s mercy we rise again only to fail, rise and repeat the cycle over and over again.  And in the process, like the best loving parent, God remains close enough to teach, guide, embrace, encourage, rebuke and forgive us, and yet far enough removed to give us the freedom to learn and grow so that we might come to fully know for ourselves the power of love.

We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May this verse of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

 

 

Scripture:  Psalm 139:13-15  (NIV)

13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

 

Genesis 1:26-28 The Message (MSG)

26-28 God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature so they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, and, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.”  God created human beings; he created them godlike, reflecting God’s nature.  He created them male and female.  God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge!  Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.”

 

Romans 7:17-25 (MSG)

17-20 But I need something more! For if I know the law but still can’t keep it, and if the power of sin within me keeps sabotaging my best intentions, I obviously need help! I realize that I don’t have what it takes. I can will it, but I can’t do it. I decide to do good, but I don’t really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. My decisions, such as they are, don’t result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time.

21-23 It happens so regularly that it’s predictable. The moment I decide to do good, sin is there to trip me up. I truly delight in God’s commands, but it’s pretty obvious that not all of me joins in that delight. Parts of me covertly rebel, and just when I least expect it, they take charge.

24 I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? Isn’t that the real question?

25 The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does. He acted to set things right in this life of contradictions where I want to serve God with all my heart and mind, but am pulled by the influence of sin to do something totally different.

 

2 Corinthians 4:7

7 But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us.

 


                                             GOING DEEPER

 

1.       Which is easier for you – loving others or loving yourself?

2.       Can you love yourself too much?

3.       What gets in the way of loving yourself/being gracious to yourself?

4.       What do you focus on more – your failures and shortcomings or your successes and grit?

5.       What are some of the ways that you experience God’s mercy new every day?

 

Scripture – Romans 7:17-25, Mark 14:3-9, 2 Corinthians 4:7
