Christian Relationships: Loving Like Jesus
Pastor Wayne Braun continued his sermon series, "Doorways to Spiritual Growth with his message on 10/21/18, entitled, "Christian Relationships: Loving Like Jesus" from Ephesians 4:15 - 16. Christ wants his church to be unshockable. Having such relationships with other believers is essential to growing in faith. You will only really love and be loved by God as you allow yourself to love and be loved by others. You will only really allow yourself to know and be known by God as you allow yourself to know and be known by other godly people. "If anyone says, "I love God" and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen." 1 John 4:20 Yet as essential as such friendships are we work hard to avoid them. He is not a God who is content to stay at arms length. His adoption has made us brothers and sisters, members together of His family.
In addition, Lynn Dassow, head of small groups ministry team, talked about getting involved in a small group.
