May 1, 2016 Pastor John Welborn #RelationshipGoals Goal Number 5: Let Love Conquer 1 Corinthians 13:1-8a I. Love Conquers Pressure with Protection “Love bears all things” 1 Corinthians 13:7a “Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:7 II. Love Conquers Doubt with Trust “…believes all things…” 1 Corinthians 13:7b “Love is not gullible, but it has faith.” A.T. Robertson III. Love Conquers Fear with Confidence “…hopes all things…” 1 Corinthians 13:7c “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” 1 John 4:18 IV. Love Conquers Quitting with Stamina “…endures all things…” 1 Corinthians 13:7d “Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.” John 13:1 V. Love Conquers Failure with Victory – “Love never ends.” 1 Corinthians 13:8a “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, ‘For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35-38 “To love you as I should, I must worship God as creator. When I have learned to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now. In so far as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God I shall be moving toward the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all. When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed, but increased.” C.S. Lewis (Letters of C.S. Lewis) You can’t love others as you should without loving God and experiencing God’s love!
