But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and
in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

"Love Conquers All"
November 27, 2023


Good morning, Brothers and Sisters. Let me start by telling you a story about a man who was walking down the street one day. He was feeling pretty good about himself, so he decided to take a shortcut through a dangerous alleyway. Suddenly, his path was blocked by a huge, menacing figure. The man was terrified at first, but then he saw something that changed his fear into admiration - a huge tattoo of a heart on the figure's chest. That tattoo reminded him that even the toughest of us need love.  

Today I want to speak to you about the power of strength and love. We all know that strength is important to protect us in difficult times. As the Bible says in Proverbs 24:5, “The wise prevail through great power, and those who have knowledge muster their strength.” But strength is only half the equation - love is just as important. As 1 Corinthians 13:13 says, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

So how do we balance strength and love? Well, let’s start by understanding that sometimes we need to be strong in order to show love. We need strength to be patient, to forgive, and to give of ourselves to others. We need strength to protect those we love when they are in danger. We need strength to take a stand for what is right and just. Being strong is not about being hard-hearted or cruel; it’s about being strong enough to show love even when it’s difficult.

Second, we need to understand that love does not diminish our strength. We can show love without becoming weak or powerless. As Paul said in 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” Love does not make us weak - it makes us strong!

Finally Brothers and Sisters, we need to remember that God is at the center of both strength and love. As Ephesians 3:16-17 says “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.” God is the one who gives us the strength to show love, and it is only through His grace that we can find the perfect balance between strength and love.

Strength and love are like two sides of the same coin. Together they make us strong and powerful, but it’s only when we put them together that we truly become warriors for Christ. So let us be strong in our faith and courageous in our love. Let us never forget that “love conquers all” (1 Corinthians 13:7).
