“The Little Fat Angel Fallacy and True Love” By Pastor Richard Daughtridge Sermon Outline July 25, 2010 (Mountain Music Worship Today See Below Announcements)

The Little Fat Angel Fallacy, True Love” By Pastor Richard Daughtridge Sermon July 25, 2010

Write this down:  “True love is worth Discovering.”

Sorting through all the counterfeits, lets answer the question,”What is true love?”

1. Little Fat Cupid Angel Theory

2. Zapped Theory

3. Birds singing, Warm and Fuzzy

4. Soul Mate Theory

5. One with Nature theory.

6. What the Bible says about love.

God’s love is  Spiritual, Emotional, and Physical.

1 Thes. 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Three Greek Words  Agape’ Phillio and Eros-

Love is a part of our free will.

Three things that impact our will.

1. Faith in God

1 Corinthians 2:14 The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

1 John 4:7-11 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. [8] He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. [9] In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. [10] Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. [11] Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

2. Circumstances of Life

Romans 8:28-29 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. [29] For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

3.   Our relationships.         We tend to mimic how we have been loved or mistreated.)

Hebrews 6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

1 Peter 3:13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

1 Cor. 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

2 Thes. 3:9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

  1. 4. The Word of God

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (body), and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart

Finally:

1 John 4:16  And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

You may know Him today.  He has a love for you that will change you. Will you place your trust in him today?
