Reckless Love Part 1 - What is Reckless Love?

 

In this message you will learn: Religion tends to complicate what Jesus made simple.

Matthew 22:36

“Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” 37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

  • Focusing on sinning less does not guarantee that you will love more. But, if you focus on loving more, it will always lead to sinning less.
  • Jesus defined discipleship with one simple question. What does love require of me?
  • What the church has tried to do is leverage what we know instead of how we love.

1 Peter 4:8 “Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.”

1 John 4:7-11 “Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.”

What would it look like for me to recklessly love?
