Love: "Love for God"

Mike Butler

Every follower of Christ has a purpose and calling. In some ways, it may be that God calls people to do different things with different intentions overall, but the primary goal is always to bring us back to showing our Love for God, Love for One another, and Love for a Broken World. CrossPointe is no different. We long for Norman to truly see Jesus Christ as the source for all hope, peace, and joy. We long for people to treat each other in ways that show them the Love of God. Lastly, we long for people to see the world around them through the eyes of the Holy Spirit and call people to consider their eternity. So, in a three week series entitled, “Love” Pastor Butler will open the Mark 12 and Matthew 28 hoping to shine the Love of God for all all to see and experience. Join us Sunday morning at either 9:00 or 10:30. For more information about CrossPointe or for access to previous sermons visit us at www.crosspointe.tv or contact us at 405-329-0823.

Love for God:

Mark 12:28-34, NIV 2011 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” 29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’  31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no commandment greater than these.” 32 “Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him. 33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34 When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions.

What does the LORD love?

Micah 6:7-9, NIV 2011 With what shall I come before the Lord and bow down before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? 7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? 8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly  with your God.

Isaiah 1:15-18, NIV 2011 Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed.  Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.

What does the LORD hate?  

Proverbs‬ ‭6:16-19‬, NIV 2011 . “There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.”

What does our Love for God look like?

  1. Celebrate God’s uniqueness

  2. Worship God with everything.

  3. Love others Generously

  4. Speak of God to others.

Acts 2:44-45, 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.

Acts 4:32-35, NIV 2011 32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.

Malachi 3:6-12, NIV 2011 6 “I the Lord do not change. So you, the descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed. 7 Ever since the time of your ancestors you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them.  Return to me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord Almighty. “But you ask,c ‘How are we to return?’ 8 “Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me. “But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’ “In tithes and offerings. 9 You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me. 10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. 11 I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,n” says the Lord Almighty. 12 “Then all the nations will call you blessed,for yours will be a delightful land,” says the Lord Almighty.
