The Power of the Gift of Love

December 18, 2022

Summary

Worship service featuring the sermon “The Power of the Gift of Love” given by Interim Pastor Rev. Johnny Richards; including scriptures from Acts 3:1-10; and music performed by music director Risa Poniros, pianist Cheryl Walker with guest performer Beth McCollum and the choir.

 

Fourth Sunday of Advent: Love

Love. The words of the song are “what the world needs now, is love, sweet love.” That is so true. God knew it was something the world needed so He sent His Son into the world to bring love. But what is it about love that is so important? How do we know when we have love, Christ’s love within us? This morning, our pastor talks about the fourth candle of advent, the candle of love, as he talks about the power of love. Our scripture is Acts 3:1-10. Barbara Goodson is our advent reader.

 

Points to Remember:

  1. Love sees a need that others may not see
  2. Love moves us to respond to that need
  3. Love moves us to focus on Christ’s help
  4. Love causes others to wonder what happened
