Love does not envy. Envy is resentment over what others have that we don't have. Pastor Nate explains that envy is both pervasive and invasive. Like weeds growing out of control, envy must be destroyed at its roots. This requires us to dig below the surface to uncover the source of our dissatisfaction and identify the idol of our heart. Applying the Gospel to treat the problem will ultimately lead to satisfaction.
This sermon series is based on 1 Corinthians 13:1-13. Love Vs. is a play on words, a reference to these biblical verses and a reference to the battle we face against the enemies of love. Topics for this eight-week series are: Love Versus status, hostility, envy, pride, stubbornness, resentment, corruption and abandonment. It is ultimately through our love that the world will know that we belong to Christ.
