Jill Boyd Speaking. Following on in the study of Agape love, Jill looks at the well known passge from 1st Corinthians 13. Often read at weddings it has been used to let us know what our love should be like. The standard though is impossibly high for people to reach. However the whole chapter is a perfect illustration of how God loves us - it describes what His love looks like. Gods love is designed to flow - ony when we have got a deeper understanding and experience of Gods love for us will we ever be able to love like that ourselves. If we try in ourselves we will simply fail. However allowing God to love us and let that love flow through us will open up a whole new dynamic in our lives.
Andrew Toogood speaking. The idea of love being without condition seems strange to us. Our experience in the world is predominantly that love is given and received based on our actions and performance. The difficulty with that is God does not love us that way, and when we relate to Him based on a faulty view of His love it leads to all sorts of insecurity, frustration and tiredness. We fail to live out the fullness of life that He has for us.
His love is nothing like human love. The Word shows us it is a love based on His commitment to your very best - a deliberate choice that He makes to see you prosper and overcome in every area of your life. In this talk, let the Word show you a whole new realm of God's commitment to you that will heal, encourage and free you.
Andrew Toogood Speaking. What is your reaction when you here the words "God loves you"? The response to that differs widely but the core truth is the same - without an increasing revelation of Gods love and unmerited favour in our lives then we are destined to live lives that fall short of Gods very best for us. Why? because the entire message of our faith is focused on this one truth - God loved us first. We need to untangle our experience and re-learn what it means to be sons and daughters of the King. In fact the word says that to see the fullness of God in your life, you must be first rooted and grounded in love.To break habits, grow in trust and to see real change requires this revelation. If you have tried everything else then listen to this series and find real freedom in the love of God.
Jeremy Harbinson shares his experience of God's amazing provision in his life, and shows that God's desire is for all of us to have an abundance so that His love and grace can flow through us. Many people find it easy to accept this truth in relation to the intangibles, but when it comes to finances and material possessions it seems more difficult. That doesn't change the fact that God wants you to prosper in all areas of your life, so that His Kingdom can prosper and grow. Grasping the concept of allowing the fullness of God to flow through us will change how you view the whole of life, and perhaps especially finances, and encourage you to step out in faith when it comes to trusting God fulling with finances.
