Like You’d Want to be Treated

Posted in love, Sermon on the Mount by LifeSpringChurch on June 24th, 2018

This sermon comes from Luke 6:27-42 and is about the implications of the Golden Rule. In the sermon, Jesus uses 9 imperatives to tell his disciples what loving other people looks like in its action.  He only uses two negative verbs to say what NOT to do.  Indeed, love is more about what we do than we don't do.

Posted in love, church by LifeSpringChurch on June 5th, 2017

Ephesians 5:21-6:9 serves as the foundation for this sermon.  In the text, Paul teaches the Ephesian Christians how one should live in a household.  What he describes is a life of loving self-sacrifice.  In 5:32, Paul discusses his real motive in the teaching when he says, "This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one."  This passage gives one of the best descriptions of how much Christ loves the church and what he was willing to sacrifice for the church.  


Posted in , love, church, Romans by LifeSpringChurch on May 17th, 2017

This sermon comes from Romans 1:8-15 in which Paul talks about the privilege he felt being able to carry the gospel to both Jews and Gentiles.  The sermon examines the discrimination that arose in the Roman church as a result of an exile imposed on Roman Jews between 41 and 52 AD.  In light of the discrimination that existed between Jews and Gentiles the book of Romans was written by Paul to provide instruction on how the Roman Christians should treat each other.

Simon, do you love me?

This sermon comes from John 21 and it uses the Lord's resurrections as a means by which to look at the growth of the disciples from men who often missed the point and doubted to people who were willing to go to the death for Jesus.  The sermon looks at the perplexing conversation between Jesus and Peter when Jesus asks three times if Peter loved him.

I’m Just A-Passing Through

Parables About Lost Things

Posted in forgiveness, Jesus, love by LifeSpringChurch on August 23rd, 2015

This sermon comes from Luke 15:1-7 and takes a look at the parables of the lost coin, lost sheep, and lost son.  These parables are Jesus' own characterization of the kind of care that he has for the lost and disenfranchised as compared to religious authorities who care more about their own power and privilege.
