Testing Your Love for God

Posted by kirxander on September 23, 2016 at 9:30 AM

As we begin our new sermon series, "I Love My Church", our first sermon was titled, "Loving the Church Means Loving People". This illustration goes along with that concept perfectly:

In an engine-room it is impossible to look into the great boiler and see how much water it contains. But running up beside it is a tiny glass tube, which serves as a gauge. As the water stands in the little tube, so it stands in the great boiler. When the tube is half full, the boiler is half full; when the tube is empty, the boiler is empty. Do you ask, "How do I know I love God? I believe I love Him, but I want to know." Look at the gauge. Your love for your brother is the measure of your love for God.—S. S. Chronicle.

Do you love your brothers in sisters in Christ? Do you love your fellow man? How you love others is a great gauge for how you love God and His church.

God Bless!

Not sure how I missed this one before. Another great point from a quick illustration. Thanks!

I really like how this story demonstrates and compares brotherly love with love of Christ. Neat anology.
