Last Sunday we had such a precious time in worship and in remembering the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus through sharing in the Lord’s Supper together. Our brother Paul Henry’s message touched our hearts as he helped us see God’s Amazing Love from 2 Corinthians 5:11-21.  Feast on the reflections on his sermon below.

 
 
 

Reflections

Last Sunday our brother Paul Henry spoke to us on Amazing Love from Corinthians 5:11-21. God demonstrates the ultimate Amazing Love for us and it shows us three things:

1) God’s amazing love is full of Compassion -  God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)   The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. (Psalm 145:8-9).

Compassion is defined as a feeling of pity inclining one to be helpful or show mercy. Our God has pity on us even in our state of sin. He feels for us and shows his compassion because he recognizes that our sin has left us in a real dyer state. Even though we mask our sin, God sees our desperate sinful heart.  His amazing love makes him compassionate. It makes him: a) Have feelings of pity for us sinners. Pity is defined as a feeling of sorrow for another’s suffering.  Even in our state of sin God attends to us. When we don’t recognize how badly we have sinned, we don’t appreciate how much God has given for us.

Why not invite someone who doesn’t know Jesus to church this Sunday?  How can you connect with others this week? Why not get involved in some area of serving here at Swallow?

In His love,
