Title: “Love is a Battle” Sermon in a Sentence: “In a constant war that is being waged by the enemy on our families we must remember that we are called to love as we have been loved and it is out of that love that we will overcome the battle in our hearts to win our families and show grace to our neighbors.”
Since we know that our assurance, confidence, promise, and certainty come from the only true God through faith in Jesus, His Son, then we must guard our hearts against the temptation to worship worthless and counterfeit misrepresentations of Him.
Our only hope for the eternal life God offers is a genuine faith in Jesus Christ, whose baptism and atoning sacrifice, along with the witness of the Holy Spirit, testify that He is the Son of God.
Those who have experienced the new birth into the family of God will love their brothers and sisters, obey their Father’s commands, and claim victory over the world through their faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
When we love one another as God commands, we reveal His self-initiating, perfected love to the world, which proves that we abide in Him and He in us, and gives us confidence before Him.
