The Love God Hates Part 2

November 9, 2023

There’s a danger we need to be aware of as Christians and that is becoming worldly!  Simply put, worldliness is anything that takes us away from loving God and doing His will.  Last time, we uncovered a couple of reasons why Christians shouldn’t love the world.  Because of what it is, and what it does to us! 

References: 1 John 2:15-17

Today on Sound Doctrine we’re talking about a love that God hates.  Maybe that sounds a bit strange upon first hearing.  But the love we’re talking about is a love for the world!   And First John contains a much-needed warning about it that we’d do well to pay close attention to!  You’re about to hear four very good reasons Christians shouldn’t love the world.

As parents we expect our kids to grow and develop over time, and if they don’t, we’d be rather alarmed!  God expects His children to grow as well.  And today on Sound Doctrine we’ll learn about the three stages of growth, as we turn to First John chapter two.  We’re talking about Christian growth today with pastor Jeff Johnson.

Growing up did your parents chart your growth on a wall somewhere in the house?  There’d be little marks with dates beside it, showing you how much you’ve grown over the years!  Today on Sound Doctrine we’ll learn that the same should happen in our spiritual development.  Christians should be growing over time, and if we aren’t, there’s something wrong!

If you’ve ever put a puzzle together you know how exciting it is when you start to see it all come together.  And you put down those final pieces!  As we turn back to Daniel that’s really what we’re seeing in chapter twelve.  The picture is becoming clear.  We’re living in the last days.  And it’s time to prepare for the coming of the Lord.

God has made it possible to come clean and receive forgiveness.  He loves us so much that He sent His son to die for our sins so that we wouldn’t have to die in our sins. With that great truth in mind, why wouldn’t we be willing to simply receive forgiveness.... and forgive others?  Our Bible teacher is pastor Jeff Johnson and he joins us today with a message from First John chapter two.  He makes the connection between walking in the light and love!

Today we continue pastor Jeff Johnson’s study in First John.  We’ll pick things up in chapter two at verse nine.  The apostle John is about to make it clear that those who are truly walking in the light will be loving and forgiving people!  Would that describe you today?  Think that through with us, as we present part one of, “To Walk in the Light = Love!”

In light of all that you’ve said and done, do ever feel unlovable?  Unworthy of love?  Well, here’s some good news… God loves you in spite of all of that, and He proved it at the cross.  Today on Sound Doctrine we’ll be encouraged to follow His example by walking in light and love.

We hear a lot about love these days, and while many view it merely as a warm gushy feeling that comes and goes on a moment’s notice, the Bible portrays it in a far different light!  Today on Sound Doctrine we go deeper into First John chapter two, and deal with a couple of verses that speak volumes about God’s love and how it motivates us to obey His commands and steer clear of sin.

See if you’re truly a born-again believer in Christ today on Sound Doctrine!  Some are self-deceived, and others just need some assurance.  Whatever the case, First John serves to help us know where we’re at with the Lord.

You can probably think of someone who lights up a room just by entering in!  People are glad to see them and they bring joy wherever they seem to be.  Today on Sound Doctrine we’re going to see how we can have a life that shines, and brings others to Jesus. There’s nothing more important than that in these last days.
