Keep Yourself in Love

July 18, 2021 ()

Jude 21, Romans 8:35-39 |


Watch Sermon

“What’s love got to do with it?” Tina Turner rhetorically asks in her 1984 hit song. When it comes to a relationship with God, the New Testament writers insist: “quite a lot, actually.” In fact, when Jude speaks of preserving the Christian faith, his primary command is that we keep ourselves in the love of God. While we can’t cause God to love us (he does!), Jude knows that we can refuse God’s love and walk away from it. We can fail to live in its light. So what does it mean to keep ourselves in God’s love? Come this week as we consider the most underutilized privilege that the world has known—that we are absolutely and fundamentally loved.
