Investigating Love

Last Sunday Corrie posed the question, “Am I Love?” and Pastor Jesse helps us use the classic investigative questions by searching God’s Word for answers.

Faithfulness

Fruit grows, process that begins when we get saved; evidence of Divine Nature as we become supernaturally natural. God is Faithful. I Cor. 10:13; II Thessalonians 3:3; Hebrews 10:23; I John 1:9; John 14: 2-3; Lamentations 3: 22-23; Revelation 19:11; Proverbs 25: 18

Love

Agape Love is the deep and abiding affection of God and Christ for each other and for us. I Corinthians 13

Fruit of the Holy Spirit

Galatians 5: 22-23 I Corinthians 10: 13 The Holy Spirit gives us the power we need to reject old, sinful desires (Galatians 5: 19-21). We are predestined to be like Jesus: YOU CHOOSE temptation or escape with your eyes on Him.

Vocal Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Tongues (1) speak to God; (2) sign to unbelievers; (3) Edify believers Interpretation of Tongues interprets Divine utterance into recognizable language Prophecy for edification, exhortation or comfort I Corinthians 14: 1-5; Acts 2; Matthew 3: 17; Psalm 139: 17; I Corinthians 14: 40

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

You can walk in power, strength, be equipped and encouraged with new abilities; 1 Corinthians 12: 1; 12: 4-7 walking in a greater measure of grace. I Corinthians 12: 8-10 outlines revelation gifts, vocal gifts and power gifts.

For Today

How we can apply what Jesus is willing for today: to touch people, look at people and listen to people. Luke 11:1; Hebrews 3: 13; 10: 24 & 25; Matthew 18: 19 & 20; I Corinthians 14: 26

Worthy

The Giver Determines Value Revelation 4: 9-11; Romans 12:1 (the gift God wants);Ephesians 2:1; Hebrews 10:10; Acts 10:15; Proverbs 23: 6 & 7; James 3: 8-10; I Corinthians 6: 20; Romans 10:9; We need to tell our heart what to believe.
