Message by Josh Mutter – June 25, 2023
Big Idea: Our experience with Jesus’ love should cause us to see life through the lens of reconciliation.
2 Corinthians 5:14-20 NIV For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
1. We should find the love of Jesus compelling.
2. The love of Jesus should transform how we approach life.
3. The love of Jesus gives us a purpose.
