we are in a series with our students entitled “i am mature” it’s time to grow up and show how much you truly love. the love factor can determine your level of maturity…here is the lowdown on the message!
1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
1. maturity is loving God with action…
Romans 5: 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Demonstrate – to show or express by action, to prove, to establish, to exhibit, to put on display!
God demonstrated his love for us – will you demonstrate yours?
Maturity is loving God with your life!
If we are going to grow up then we have to put our love on display!
2. Maturity is loving your neighbor as yourself!
3 people had a chance…to show love!
by chance these people walked by a man beaten half to death and stripped…
1. the priest
2. the levite
3. the Samaritan
by chance you are going to walk by someone…that needs to know what love is…
What will you choose to avoid or show compassion.
