CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Crucifixion Love is the love that Christ showed us. He loved us even though we didn’t deserve it. His Love for us was not predicated on us first loving Him.

Reciprocation Love is loving someone because they’ve first loved us or loving someone with an expectation of something in return. Examples: 1) I’m going to unload the dishwasher so that my wife will notice and that will hopefully lead to sex later on tonight. 2) I’m going to help out with the kids this morning so that my wife will let me go golfing next weekend (and if she says ‘no’, I’ll remind her of how helpful I was with the kids the other day). 3) Or maybe it’s simply that you’re hanging out with someone or being friendly towards them because you’re expecting something in return – you hope to close a business deal, be seen in a certain crowd, you want them to approve of you, etc….

Although we’ll constantly fall short of it in our fleshly bodies, we are called to love others with crucifixion love. Love others even when they don’t deserve it. Love others with no expectation of anything in return.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Do you like the mountains for the valleys, or do you like the valleys for the mountains.  I heard that question some time ago.  The fact is, you can’t have one without the other.  Life is full of peaks and valleys.  But God is with us either way.  “The God of the Mountain is Still God in the Valley.”  1 Kings20:23-27.  When we are stuck in a valley, God sends us F3, family, friends to help us get up to the moutain top.  And being in the valley makes the mountain top all that much sweeter.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
We talked about the Hardship Hill race and how it is important for us to serve our veterans and be a part of this great opportunity.

I gave an example of a African minister who was able to grow his church to huge numbers.  When American missionaries came to help they were astonished on how many people were coming to Christ through his church. They asked him how he was able to draw in so many people, he replied by saying that in America people study God‘s word and Bible studies at church and other areas, here they live in God’s word by serving others and people see that and want to be a part of a movement.  Then they study. We have it backwards here. We need to serve others and live for Christ not just study his Word.
MOLESKIN:

BOM
Matthew 5:43-48
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?  And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

The word “perfect” doesn’t mean without error, it means mature.  Our lives are to be marked by daily growth.  Sometimes it will be slow and slight, sometimes large and loud, but either way we should be seeking to grow physically, mentally, relationally, and spiritually everyday.

The growth point in this passage is love, specifically loving those who don’t love us.  It’s easy to love those we like, but what we are called to as HIMs is to even love those who stand against us.  This does NOT mean we let people trample over us or take us off mission.  It means we relate in a way that is void of hate or anger.  How we live and relate is what sets us apart.  We live on mission for a purpose.

This week you will face “enemies.”  Some you will know personally, some you won’t.  Brothers, choose love!  I will warn you now, you can’t do it in your own strength.  The good news is you don’t have to.  When faced with a difficult situation, seek help from above.  Pray that God would grant you the love for others that he has for you.
