Loved to Life: Journey to the Cross

Pastor Preston shares on Palm Sunday the story of the passover meal and the last supper as we head into the week leading up to Easter. The disciples and Jesus had a meal together and we often remember this story. In this story, Jesus also washes their feet and gives the disciples a new commandment. It was to love one another. We've been talking about virtues and vices in the sermon series and they say that love is the pinnacle of all virtues. We will not overcome our vices by just trying to be virtuous, that's why the core of it all is embodying a posture of love.  You can't love someone in a vacuum; it's an action. We can only love because he loved us. Let us be reminded we have been made clean and the love was given long before today.

Loved to Life: Envy to Courage

 

As we get closer to Easter, Pastor Preston shared on the journey from Envy to Courage. He explored how envy clouds our vision, and how God’s love leads us into new life. Envy and courage hinge on how we relate to the goodness in others. there are at least three evil components to envy: the deep discontent that comes when I see that another person has what I want; the desire to have it for myself; and the desire for it to be taken from him.
