The Love of Christ
4 April 2021 PM – 2 Corinthians 5:14-17 – Resurrection – Scott Childs
Introduction: In John 15:13 Jesus said, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the greatest love ever displayed. (Romans 5:6-8) “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.“
Transition: Our text this evening identifies four actions motivated by the love of Christ, which we need to understand and live out.
