January has just passed and 31 days into the new year are now gone. How did you live in those first 31 days in 2017.

Now that February is here, attention quickly shifts to the month of love. Rightly so, this month sermon series we want to talk about LOVE. We call this month’s sermon series – Love Came, Love Rules.

In a world so divided, where individual’s rightness must be approved otherwise one will violate the dignity of others. It is easy to invoke hatred for one’s belief, religion, behavior, political affiliations and lifestyle. I love this quote from an article:

“If there is any hope for all of us to move forward, to heal and to grow – we have got to learn to engage people who are different from us with dignity and love” (statement by Chip Gaines, star from a HGTV show – Fixer Upper)

Jesus is Love and He expressed His love through His grace by laying down His life not only for the people that liked and loved Him, but also for the people who hated and disagreed with Him.

7-10 My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God.
11-12 My dear, dear friends, if God loved us like this, we certainly ought to love each other. No one has seen God, ever. But if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and his love becomes complete in us—perfect love! 1 John 4:7-12 (MSG)

Love came, Love rules and God has claimed as such “chosen and marked by my love, pride of my life. Mark 1:1 (MSG)”

IFGF Seattle News- January 28th 2017

Nelson Mandela is one of the most famous leaders in the world known for leading South Africa through the Anti- Apartheid Revolutionary and into democracy. He became a symbol of compassion and equality for the people. In his Biography, Long Walk to Freedom, he likened leadership to that of shepherding - “Lead from the back and let others feel like they are in front”.

How can you become more successful servant leaders in your home, work and ministry? One of the key aspects we learn from the Gospel of Mark is “immediately”. The word appeared over 40 times, and it portrays how Jesus served - he was always about the “Father’s business”, he served promptly and regarded his mission with urgency without delay. Do you respond and treat responsibilities “immediately”? Do you see others as assets and serve people with love? God has set the perfect example in Jesus and as you follow in his footsteps, you’ll find that the higher you climb the merrier it gets! Lead from behind as you continue to move Together Forward!

Prayer point:
Think about our God given talents and strength. Let God open our eyes, creativity, and understanding to use our talents for His kingdom.

When Jesus had conversations with the law teachers at the age of twelve, it didn’t say that He tried to impress the theologians at that time. On the contrary, it is written that they were impressed by what Jesus said. How could a teenager possess such deep knowledge?

If we possess good quality in us, sooner or later, like it or not, eventhough we try to hide it, people will find out that quality. As the sun doesn’t have to insist that it is a sun but just shines its bright, everyone knows that it has the best quality to be the main source of light. In this life sometimes we are tempted to prove ourselves to other people, showing off our abilities. Whereas, if we posses good quality, people will realize and admit it themselves.

Prayer point:
Ask God to give us humility so that we don’t try to show off our abilities, but instead we live ordinarily, using our talents to the max.
