The Story Continues
1 Corinthians 12:31b
Synopsis: The celebration of Easter every year reminds believers that the hope, peace, joy and love of God lives because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Believers have an opportunity to help other people experience life in Christ by living in faithful expectation. The story literally continues to be told or illustrated in the lives in and through the lives of believers.
God demonstrated His LOVE for all the world by sending His Son (John 3:16-17). Though Jesus was rejected and crucified on the third day God’s love flowed unhindered from the empty tomb. This love of God is as good as it gets in this life and has the power to bring believers to life on the verge of eternity.
Gary Chapman illustrates that Love Is A Verb in a little book by that title. He illustrates this statement through stories of people who have discovered it in their own lives. Love is not a possession to hold. Love is the power of God to hold believers in the palm of His mighty hand. The Story Continues.
