May Our Love Increase (1 Peter 3:8-12)

Steve Newton, February 12, 2017
Part of the 1 Peter series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

If you do nothing for your spouse, then it will not be long before you feel nothing for your spouse. And if you say you believe in Jesus Christ, but do not allow your belief to turn into action, it will not be long until your religion is simply a liturgy, going through the motions. And it is also true that if you do nothing with or for your brothers and sisters in the Lord, it will not be long before you slip away from their fellowship. Think about your walk with Christ. Is there any feeling there? Any love?

THE INVITATION TO MEMBERSHIP at Westminster Church is always open to persons who wish to join us in witness and service to Jesus Christ. If you are interested in church membership or desire more information about this congregation, please call 936-564-0203.

1 Peter 3:8-12

8Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 9Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 10For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 12For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. (KJV)
