GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER || NOVEMBER 26, 2023 || SERIES: GRATEFUL || SPEAKER: REV. DAVE PEARCE
We know that we are to be known by our love, but there are as many definitions of love as there are people in the world. Our goal is not to love as your family loves or love as you’ve learned to love or love as your friends love but to love according to the commandments of God. To this we must ask two questions: is our loving obedient and is our obedience loving?
Sometimes our giving can be less than selfless. We occasionally give in order to receive something in return. Jesus tells the Parable of the Great Banquet to remind us that the Father’s heart is for anyone and everyone who will respond to His love. He invites us to express our gratitude by serving and sharing with others.
