In 2 Corinthians 13:11, Paul issues a series of rapid-fire instructions, followed by a final blessing, “Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.” God wants us to put our differences aside and come together so that we can all benefit from our many different spiritual gifts. As Christians, we should love each other with the love that comes from God.
It’s plain to see that we live in a messed up, sin-filled world! Should we throw our hands in the air and give up? No! Jesus has (and is) the antidote for all that ails us and our society. He has (and is) the cure for all and any of the sinful characteristics that we deal with daily. In this stand-alone sermon, “Our Disease…God’s Antidote”, Pastor Dave will focus on God’s remedy for hatred, violence, divisiveness, self-centeredness, and evil. We will be reminded of God’s love, peace, unity, mercy, and goodness. We will also be challenged to be agents of those characteristics.
