For The Love (Part 5 of 7) - God Pursuing Us

Sermon Title: For The Love (Part 5 of 7) - God Pursuing Us

Scripture Reference: 1 John 4:17-19 ESV

"When we think of God, we might sometimes (or all of the time) think of a grumpy old man who is mad at us for something we did. While the Bible uses the word fear to refer to a general sense of respect and awe, there’s also the more common use of the word: terror and intimidation. The good news of Jesus, however, broke new ground in divine-human relations. Because only now through Jesus can we be both filled with awe at his greatness, and experience a beautiful, warm, intimate relationship with the God of the universe. This opens new landscapes for our lives, and in how we treat one another. "
