Connecting Point – February 14, 2024

 

What's Love Got To Do With It? is a song that was made famous by Tina Tuner. The refrain of the song has these words: "Oh-oh-oh, what's love got to do, got to do with it? What's love, but a second-hand emotion? What's love got to do, got to do with it? Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?" If you've ever had your heart broken, you can understand why some people want to shy away from love. But the truth of the matter is, we all want to experience love in our lives - love from the Lord and love from other people. And when I'm speaking of love I mean authentic love, selfless love, unconditional love. Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers once sang, "Real Love, Not Infatuation." And we all want love from others.

Now, I've been falling in love with girls for a long time. In the 3rd grade her name was Ginny. In the 4th grade her name was Regina. In the 5th grade her name was Carla. In the 6th grade her name was Sharon. In the 7th grade her name was Peggy. In the 8th grade it was Carla again. And there were lots of other girls I fell in love with until I met one who really captured my heart. I'm speaking of Vicki of course. And we've been madly in love with her for a long time. So, I know a lot (I think) about love. And one of the things I've learned about love is that when we learn how to express love towards others, we're more apt to experience love from others (Galatians 6;7).

When we learn how to express love towards others, and we're more apt to experience love from others

This Sunday we're continuing IT'S TIME TO CHANGE in our Worship Services. We're going to be learning about the value of Kindness, and how to express that virtue to others. Remember Paul said, "Real love is kind" (1 Corinthians 13:4). We look forward to seeing you as we learn what this value is all about and how to incorporate it into our lifestyle and relationships. Invite some people to come with you this Sunday, especially those who need to become kinder in their words, attitudes and actions toward others.

On Sunday, February 25, we're going to be celebrating TEAM DAY in our Worship Services. On that Sunday we want you to wear your favorite Team's jersey or insignia. And we want you to learn about the various ministries that we have at our Celebration Campuses, and how you can get involved in one of our ministry teams. One of the things that we learned in a recent sermon is that people who are engaged in serving the Lord and people with their time and abilities have lots more Joy in their lives. So be sure to join us for TEAM DAY.

Remember, Jesus changes everything!
