May 17, 2020 – The Sixth Sunday of Easter – Love is a Four Letter Word

1 Corinthians 13:1-13      “Faith, hope, and love abide, but the greatest of these is love.”

           Love. How many sermons on love? How many weddings with this passage? You have to love him/her, they’re your ____. The greatest commandment is to love. Now we have to love, God says so.

           What do we really mean when we say love? Can a man say “I love you” to another man, to a woman not his spouse, to a child, to an older person? Can a woman say “I love you“ to another woman, to a man not her spouse, to a child to an older person? What do we mean when we say I love you? What do we mean when we say God loves us? What do we mean when we say that God loves our neighbors? What does it take to love?
