Rev. C.B. Samuels message

Posted by: Philip Alex | Posted on: May 23rd, 2010 | 0 Comments

Here is a summary of the Sunday message: it is a bit cryptic, rather like morse code. You will need to expand it yourself.

Loving God is a command we have to choose to do it. We cant define it the way we want.

Three components to love

  • Devotional component

We have to love God. Love demands presence.

  • Transformational component

We have to change. We have to choose Loving God or Loving the world/money

  • Missional component

Be Missional in all you do. Desire to communicate.

There are many ways to love God but one way to love God that is to love your neighbour. If you do not love your neighbour you are a liar. Loving people is not a suggestion. He said that if you don’t love all the work you do will be dismantled.

Philippians 2. Having the same mind there is no unity. Be Complete by being likeminded. Have this mind. 1Peter 4:1/ 1Cor :2 / the mind of Christ Leadership. You do not have the mind of Christ. We hide under excuses not to love. That it is not my style, or not our culture, etc. This is not a culture problem. This is a spiritual problem.

Four componenents. from Philippians 2:

  • Dont cling to the image. Chapter 3. People love their own status. You have created an image which you love. If any one touches that image finished. Unless you hate that image you cannot love.
  • Made himself nothing,vulnerable. Made himself nothing. We act from our security. Hard to love people who tell you the truth. We have to empty yourself. difficult to love when we protect ourself.
  • Relocate ourselves. What you have to give. You come in from power. You dont want to be at the disposal of others. We are stuck to our status. Are you a servant?
  • What they ask you to is painful to do. They will sit on your head. The fear is that others will give you your agenda. The reason we do not love is because we have not died to ourselves.
