Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Extravagant Love!

This series that began more than two months ago gives real life examples of where our Creator shows us how to love extravagantly.

In like manner we are told to give our lives away, to die to self.

The example of Jesus of Nazareth, our Creator, is to love extravagantly.

Our last trip to the lake this summer made a profound impact on our kids. The grandeur of Creation hit home. The knowledge that they are not a bit player but a chosen and important character in this story made them sit up and take note (Ephesians 2:10). They have a significant part to play, and they know it. They have a significant part to play because God has chosen that for them. They are loved by the greatest love in the universe and they have a duty to give that love away.

Creator God, not satan, but Creator God defines who you are. As His child, as an heir to the riches of His glory, you are destined for glory, both now and for eternity. Those who know this in the core of their being are those who are able to love extravagantly.

satan knows the damage you will create for him if you love extravagantly and it terrifies him. he will do everything he can to destroy your effectiveness in life.

“Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk. Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you.” From Paul’s letter to the Ephesian Christians - 4:31,32

Nahum 1:7 - The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.

THIS is love!
