Great sermon by John MacArthur. He starts off with a small introduction about the love we should meet someone with and then informs us about the common grace of God. He then swings over to the magnificent and everlasting love the Lord has for his chosen sheep. Scriptures out of the Old and New Testament are used as an Illustration. This sermon is as always packed with biblical insight and knowledge. A must-watch for Christians searching for the biblical truth of God’s saving love.
Bibleverses used in this sermon:
|Matthew 5:43-46||You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?|
