Sermons from Vienna Assembly of God. Pastor Brenda Burns speaks most weeks, and we are honored to host amazing guests as well from time to time.
The Endurance of Love
This enduring love is only possible because God first loved us. This enduring love is not manufactured out of a vacuum. It is received as a free gift from God himself to us. As we have freely received, we freely give. So do not grow weary. Do not lose faith. Remain hopeful. Through the love of God and Jesus Christ, we will endure through every circumstance.
The Freedom of Love
The challenge and the promise in this moment is to imagine the possibilities for our church family. We must reach out to share the love of God. The freedom of love is that we are free to love EVERYONE. And there is a desperate need for that love to be poured out in as many ways as possible.
The Power of Love
The first thing that anyone or anything encounters when coming into contact with me should be love. There is nothing more powerful than that.
Love Your Neighbor 2
Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law. Romans 13:8
Love Your Neighbor
Love your neighbor. It’s bound to be inconvenient, and maybe risky, and even surprising. But this is the life! This is the vibrant, abundant, heart-full, soul-full, mind-full, strength-full, love-your-neighbor-full way to live!
Love Breaks. Love breaks down walls. We really can’t say we love God, yet hate our brother or sister. Even if they happen to live on the other side of a wall - a racial wall, a cultural wall, a generational wall, a political wall, an economic wall - there’s so many ways we build up walls and funnel ourselves into people corrals and divide up the who’s in and who’s out. But if you find yourself despising others, that is a wall that God desires to see broken. Jesus broke down the wall of hostility that separated us.
