Love Reigns Over Your Present

Sunday May 2, 2021

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

God’s great mercy became a transforming reality through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This mercy is a result of God’s love for His creation, and His love invites His followers to live life differently. Disciples are to be living sacrifices that no longer conform to the patterns of the world. The carnality around us is deceptive, selfish, angry, and foolish. These cannot be the patterns that followers of Christ live by. Rather, you must renew the way you think, and in doing so, you will discover God’s will and purpose. To be a living sacrifice is a persistent battle because a living sacrifice is constantly tempted to remove itself from off the altar. The decisions you make today will determine who you are and what you will be tomorrow. God’s mercy has given you the chance to “die to yourself” and to be “alive in Christ.” Determine the current patterns in your life that are destructive and replace them with Christ’s best ways of living.
