Sunday Sermon: The Most Excellent Way

If I love right I’ll live right. That may sound like an awfully big statement so let me take just a second and prove that this is true all throughout Scripture. What is the first and great commandment? It is to LOVE the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. What is the second greatest commandment? It is to LOVE others as we love our selves. Jesus said that everything else written in Scripture hangs on these two commandments (Matt 22:37-40). What Jesus meant by that last statement is that if we love as we are supposed to love, we will live as we are supposed to live. When I love God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, I will do everything that God wants me to do and His commands will not be a burden (1 John 5:3). At the same time, if I love other people as I love myself, I will do everything that Scripture commands me to do for others, and I will refrain from doing to others what Scripture forbids. Love is the most excellent way. When I love right I’ll live right. This passage shows us three reasons loving right leads to living right. . Speaker: Stacy J Ross. 1 Corinthians 13:1-8. Series: Sin City.
