Sermon This Week...

Running Hard After God!

(Sermon 8)

God Encounters – Our Privilege!

We were created primarily to love God and enjoy Him forever! Since Jesus’ command to His disciples in Matthew 28 we have an additional purpose, to love others and introduce them to the love of God! This is summed up so well in the words of Jesus…

Matthew 22:37–39 (NLT) 37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

We must be knowing God yet pursuing the knowledge of God! We must take advantage of our greatest privilege – intimacy with God!
