Cultivating Sacrificial Love POHFW

Preparing our Hearts to Worship


In an effort to help you prepare for the September 8, 2019, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on What God wants us to Believe, Do, and Become. I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “Cultivating Sacrificial Love”. The main Scriptures for the day are the 1John 4:7-12.


(Pick and choose from the many resources and options, which I have tried to make available for your devotional life.)


From the Scriptures


Please read through Chapter 21 of Believe this week, this is an edited selection of Scriptures from the NIV that seeks to show how certain beliefs, ways of living and character qualities are elaborated upon throughout all of Scripture.

 Heidelberg Catechism Q107


But is it enough that we do not kill our neighbor in any such way?

No; for when God forbids envy, hatred, and anger, he commands us to love our neighbor as ourselves: to show patience, peace, meekness, mercy, and all kindness towards him, prevent his hurt as much as in us lies, and do good even to our enemies.
