Sermon 02 May 2021 (Easter 5)

Love is sacrifice by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  What is love? God is love: unconditional, sacrificial love. It is not the love of fellowship, or of food, or riches, or holidays, or happy times. God defines love as sacrificing for others, and He was the first to do this through His Son Jesus Christ. When you love as Christ did, you become a target of Satan as Christ did. We cannot love without abiding in Him. Love is sacrifice, and it is the heart of a normal Christian life.
