Loving Like Christ (Acts 9:1-9, 1 Corinthians 13:11-13, Ephesians 6:12)

Dick Beaumont, October 2, 2016
Part of the From Here to There series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Acts 9:1-9; 1 Corinthians 13:11-13; Ephesians 6:12. We have got to love like Jesus loves. But God knows the transformation is a process and not a one-time occurrence. It's hard when we look at the mountain that lies before us that we need to climb, but when we give ourselves over to the transformation process, the Lord is the one that does the work. In this sermon, Pastor Dick Beaumont enourages us to turn our lives over fully to Jesus and ask him for help to love the way He loves.

Acts 9:1-9

9:1 But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. And falling to the ground he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” And he said, “Who are you, Lord?” And he said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. But rise and enter the city, and you will be told what you are to do.” The men who were traveling with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one. Saul rose from the ground, and although his eyes were opened, he saw nothing. So they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. And for three days he was without sight, and neither ate nor drank. (ESV)

1 Corinthians 13:11-13

11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (ESV)

Ephesians 6:12

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (ESV)
