More Than a Feeling: Love in the Third Degree


John 21:15-25


Gifts are given; fruit are grown.

Love is not a feeling. Love is a decision. Love means changes.

Your root determines your fruit.

You cannot be the antidote if you are afraid of poison.

The Bible is NOT a comprehensive list or work of Jesus’ ministry or life.

“And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.” John 21:25

We do not need and should not take it upon ourselves to defend Jesus and God.

Faith produces feelings; feelings do not produce faith.

joy != happy
Happy is rooted in the happen. What’s happening.

Jesus did not call Peter out until Peter calls out to Jesus first.
Are you waiting to hear from God when He is waiting for your call first to respond?

The enemy never wants that which/whom is not a threat.

You aren’t a disciple until you’ve allowed someone to discipline you.

Who do you think you are to be pretentious enough to be offended by God?

Do you love Him?
Do you GOD God?

  • God == love
  • love == God
