Valentine’s Day. I’m resisting doing anything sappy or cheesy to spiritualize this Hallmark occasion. So, there will be no sermon on why Jesus is your Best Valentine.
But, I will be talking about What We Most Need to Know About Jesus. It has been hard to prepare for this sermon, because I don’t know what to leave out. My goal is very clear, though. I want to influence your experience with Christ, not just what you may know about him. I want you and me to be able to say, “For to me, to live is Christ.” Philippians 1:21. What did Paul know about Jesus that made him live out what he said there?
My heart and mind have been encouraged and challenged this week as I have considered this question. So, I can’t wait until Sunday.
An assignment: be prepared to share one of your favorite Bible passages about Jesus.
