Love One Another

Text: Hebrews 13:1-3
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: April 22, 2007

Last week we completed the theological argument of Hebrews. This week we have come to the final chapter of Hebrews which is full of practical exhortations. We will take three weeks to consider verses 1-6 which admonish us to love, to sexual purity, and to contentment (freedom from money-love). Virtually every religion would claim to promote love, fidelity, and contentment. Christianity, however, approaches morality in a unique way. The most important moral issue is not love for fellow-man, but love for God. Also, our love for one another is grounded upon the love God has shown us in Christ. His love is our example and enablement.

This week’s sermon may not, like the earlier section of Hebrews, blow you away with deep doctrinal truth. Instead you will be reminded of our duty to love each other and how in particular to express love through hospitality and caring for those who are suffering.
