My notes from the sermon which are just a small part of the message.  The whole sermon can be heard at: http://www.staffordcrossing.org/pages/page.asp?page_id=363311&programId=255875

Am I so close to you that I can’t feel you

Or your love so deep that I can’t fathom

Are your works so great that I can’t see you

Or the shocking love you gave through the son


Let discover God’s ultimate gift of love

The only son and he gave him to save us

Not just for a few, but a gift for given for all

Do not deny that it is for whoever accepts his word


Do not limit God’s love and grace, He sent this gift for all the world

How do we look at God’s love, For his love comes in so many ways


The love for the son and the son for the father

His providential love and love of salvation

His conditional and selection love, the love of the father for his children


Jesus love lives through his sacrifice for all

God’s love shocking, yet holy

His son came to teach but truly he came for salvation


God must judge sin and not everyone will be saved.

His love does not negate the need for justice

Let us encourage our to believe in the Saviour of the World

The son of salvation is our sin bearer

Let God speak fresh and new each day


Do not love with words or speech but with actions and truth.

This is how we show that we belong to the truth

Live by the truth and come into the light

Live so the world can plainly see his love

and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence


Type of God’s Love – Peculiar – Providential – Love for Salvation -God’s selecting love –

God conditional love
For the shocking love of Christ – If our hearts condemn us, if we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. – 1 John 3:18-20
