Sermon Series: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs
Message: The Reckless Love of God
Scripture: Luke 15:1-7
I can recall first hearing the words on the radio, “O, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God” and thinking, YES! These words speak to me! They resonate with how I feel about God and His love for each of us. When I was lost, His unconditional love found me and led me back to Him. This unconditional love of God is a love that I now feel in my heart, and it is a feeling that drives me toward God again and again.
The song I am referring to is “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury. If you are not familiar with the song, follow this link to hear a beautiful version of it: https://youtu.be/ZLFak6N04GY
If you have never felt this overwhelming, unconditional love of God, I encourage you to keep praying. To be still and listen. Surround yourself with a faith community. Reach out to others. Love other people the way that you want to be loved. You WILL feel it. I am sure of it.
How do I know this? Because we have a God that pursues us, and His love fights for us. Even when we are lost, He comes after us, to find us and to bring us home.
This week’s message in our Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs series, The Reckless Love of God, will reflect on the Parable of the Lost Sheep in Luke 15:1-7. It is my hope and prayer that you will join us this week as we explore this overwhelming, never-ending and reckless love that God offers to us. Join us this Sunday at 9:30 and 11:00 am as we worship and praise this God who continues to give himself away to us, over and over again.
