Message: “Acting Like God” from Tom Leonard

Acting Like God

Acting Like God Luke 6:27-36 Main Point: The heart of Jesus’ teaching is that we are to love like God loves – being kind and merciful to all as He has been to us! I John 4:7-12 Agape = unconditional commitment to one’s good. 1. God is merciful and kind to all – even the ungrateful and the wicked. (verses 35-36) Matthew 5:44-45 Lamentations 3:22 “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.” 2. We are to love our enemies, do good to those who hate us – even lend freely to them, bless and pray for those who curse and mistreat us! (verses 27-31) Jesus’ example – I Peter 2:23-24 – He loved them by giving His life! 3. As we do this, our future reward will be great and we will show ourselves to be sons & daughters of God Most High! (verse 35) Romans 12 :17-21
