LESSON TITLE: THE HALF WAS NOT TOLD ME GODS LOVE



WELCOME

WELCOME TO THE LIVING WORD PROGRAM ON THIS WONDROUS LORD'S DAY. WHAT A PRIVILEGE IT IS TO HAVE YOU WITH US TODAY, AS WE TOGETHER GIVE THIS TIME TO GOD. I KNOW THAT WE WILL ALL BE ENCOURAGED AND UPLIFTED BY OUR TIME TOGETHER THIS MORNING. SO, LET'S GIVE OUR BEST TO GOD SO THAT HE MAY BE PLEASED WITH OUR OFFERING. FURTHERMORE, LET'S DO ALL THINGS ACCORDING TO HIS WILL SO THAT OUR WORSHIP WILL BE RECEIVED BY HIM IN A GOOD AND PERFECT WAY. NOW, LET'S APPROACH HIS THRONE IN PRAYER!

PRAYER: OUR GOD AND FATHER IN HEAVEN, WE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS DAY AND THE MANY BLESSINGS OF LIFE - THE PRIVILEGE THAT WE HAVE TO BE CALLED YOUR CHILDREN AND TO BE SERVANTS IN YOUR KINGDOM - AND HELP US THIS DAY AND EVERY DAY TO BE LIGHTS IN THIS WORLD THAT OTHERS MIGHT SEE YOU AND KNOW YOU THROUGH US AND THAT WE MIGHT HELP THEM TO LOOK TO YOUR WORD TO KNOW WHAT YOU WOULD HAVE THEM TO DO THAT THEY MIGHT FIND SALVATION AS WELL. AND FATHER, WE KNOW THESE THINGS ARE ONLY POSSIBLE THROUGH JESUS AND THE GREAT SACRIFICE THAT HE GAVE FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US AND WE THANK YOU FOR THAT GIFT. IN JESUS NAME WE PRAY, AMEN.

ISN'T IT NICE AND COMFORTING TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE THOSE IN THIS LIFE WHO LOVE US AND CARE FOR US. GROWING UP AS CHILDREN, THERE WAS NOTHING MORE CALMING THAT BEING IN THE ARMS OR PRESENCE OF OUR LOVING PARENTS. SPIRITUALLY WE HAVE A LOT TO BE THANKFUL FOR AS WELL, BECAUSE WE HAVE THE ULTIMATE CARE GIVER AND PROVIDER IN JESUS CHRIST. THIS MORNING WE WANT TO BEGIN WITH A SONG WHICH CLARIFIES THIS CARE WHICH JESUS HAS FOR YOU AND ME. SO, WON'T YOU JOIN IN WITH THE CONGREGATION AT THIS TIME AS WE SING TOGETHER THE SONG, "HIDE ME, ROCK OF AGES!"



DEVOTIONAL THOUGHTS



ISN'T IT HARD TO PUT GOD FIRST AND TO ALWAYS SEEK AFTER HIS KINGDOM. ESPECIALLY IN THE FACT THAT WE HAVE SO MANY TEMPTATIONS AND THIS IN THIS WORLD THAT ARE PULLING US IN EVERY DIRECTION. HOWEVER, THE REALITY IS, GOD DOES EXPECT US TO FOCUS ON HIM AND TO PUT OUR THOUGHTS, HOPES AND TRUST IN HIM AND HIS WORD. IN COLOSSIANS 3, PAUL TALKS TO THE BRETHREN AT COLOSSAE AND REMINDS THEM WHAT THEY MUST FOCUS ON. IN VERSES 1 TO 2, THE BIBLES SAYS, "IF THEN YOU WERE RAISED WITH CHRIST, SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ABOVE, WHERE CHRIST IS, SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD. SET YOUR MIND ON THINGS ABOVE, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH. FOR YOU DIED, AND YOUR LIFE IS HIDDEN WITH CHRIST IN GOD." DID YOU CATCH ALL OF THAT? AS FOLLOWERS OF GOD WE ARE TO FOCUS ON THOSE THINGS ABOVE WHERE GOD IS! THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE HIGHER THAN THE WORLD, GOOD AND RIGHTEOUS. THEN IN THE NEXT STATEMENT PAUL GOES ON TO TELL US WHY THIS IS AND SHOULD BE SO. THE ANSWER, "FOR WE DIED!" HOW OFTEN DO WE FORGET THAT WHEN WE BECAME CHRISTIANS WE TRULY DIED TO OURSELVES AND TO THE WANTS AND DESIRES OF THIS LIFE. AT LEAST SO FAR AS WE ALLOW THESE THINGS TO BE FIRST OR TO COME BEFORE OUR GOD. FOR THE TRUE CHRISTIANS, THERE IS NO OTHER ACCEPTABLE WAY TO FOLLOW AND SERVE GOD THAN TO PUT HIM FIRST AND TO ALWAYS FOCUS ON THAT WHICH IS GOOD AND THUS PERTAINS TO HIM.

ANOTHER VERSE WHICH HELPS WITH THIS SAME TOPIC IS FOUND IN PAUL'S LETTER TO THE PHILIPPIANS. IN CHAPTER 4 AND VERSE EIGHT OF THAT BOOK, THE INSPIRED WRITER SAID, FINALLY, BRETHREN, WHATEVER THINGS ARE TRUE, WHATEVER THINGS ARE NOBLE, WHATEVER THINGS ARE JUST, WHATEVER THINGS ARE PURE, WHATEVER THINGS ARE LOVELY, WHATEVER THINGS ARE OF GOOD REPORT, IF THERE IS ANY VIRTUE AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING PRAISEWORTHY; MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS. THE REALITY IS WE MUST COMPLETELY COMMIT OURSELVES TO FOCUSING ON THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE GODLIKE, IF WE EVER EXPECT TO BE WHAT HE DESIRES OF US AS CHRISTIANS. FURTHERMORE, AS WE HAVE ALWAYS HEARD, "WE ARE WHAT WE EAT." NOW BRING THAT OVER TO A SPIRITUAL SENSE. THAT WHICH WE TAKE IN THROUGH WORD, DEEDS AND THOUGHT REALLY DETERMINES WHAT EVENTUALLY WILL COME OUT. ISN'T THAT WHY JESUS SAID, "FOR OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART THE MOUTH SPEAKS," MATTHEW 12:34. WHATEVER IS ON THE INSIDE WILL BE SEEN ON THE OUTSIDE, NO MATTER HOW HARD WE TRY TO HIDE IT OR TO DECEIVE THOSE AROUND US. WHAT TYPES OF THINGS ARE YOU SEEKING IN RELATIONSHIP TO CHRIST? ARE YOU FOCUSED ON THOSE THINGS FROM ABOVE?

AFTER OUR NEXT SONG TOGETHER, WE WILL BE LEAD IN OUR LESSON THOUGHTS OF THE DAY. THIS MORNING WE WILL BEGIN A NEW SERIES OF STUDY ENTITLED, "THE HALF WAS NOT TOLD ME." OUR SPECIFIC LESSON OF THE DAY WILL DEAL WITH, "GOD'S LOVE?" SO, PLEASE STAY WITH US FOR THIS IMPORTANT STUDY FROM GOD'S WORD. AS FAR AS OUR SPEAKER TODAY, WE ARE HAPPY TO HAVE BROTHER JERRY SULLINS WITH US. BROTHER JERRY IS THE DIRECTOR OF THE BIBLE INSTITUTE OF MISSOURI HERE IN SPRINGFIELD. WE THANK HIM FOR JOINING US AGAIN TODAY. NOW IT'S TIME TO JOIN IN OUR SECOND SONG OF THE MORNING. WON'T YOU JOIN IN WITH THE CONGREGATION AS WE SING THE HYMN, "BLESSED REDEEMER."



LESSON

BY JERRY SULLINS



AGAIN, WELCOME TO THE LIVING WORD BROADCAST. AGAIN, WE'RE SO HAPPY THAT YOUR LISTENING THIS MORNING AND VIEWING THIS TELEVISION PROGRAM AND WE ARE ALWAYS EXCITED ABOUT THE FACT THAT WE CAN COME INVITED INTO YOUR LIVING ROOM OR INTO YOUR DEN SO THAT YOU CAN STUDY WITH US GOD'S HOLY WORD. IT'S EXCITING TODAY FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO INTRODUCE TO YOU A NEW SERIES. I BEGIN WITH A STORY THAT WE READ ABOUT IN THE BOOK OF 1 KINGS CHAPTER 10 AND BEGINNING ACTUALLY IN VERSE 1 THROUGH VERSE 7. THERE WAS A PERSON BY THE NAME OF THE QUEEN OF SHEBA WHO HAD RECEIVED REPORTS ABOUT THE WEALTHIEST PERSON WHO'S EVER LIVED ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH AND A KINGDOM THAT WAS GLORIOUS ABOVE ALL KINGDOMS THAT HAD EXISTED AT THAT TIME. HIS NAME WAS SOLOMON, A WONDERFUL PERSON IN THE SIGHT OF GOD IN SO MANY WAYS. ONE WHO WROTE INDEED AND IS RECORDED IN SOME OF THE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE CONCERNING HIS PROVERBS AND OTHER GREAT STATEMENTS OF WISDOM. I LOVE SO MUCH THE BOOK OF ECCLESIASTES WHERE HE SHARES WITH HIS SON OR SONS THE GREATEST MESSAGE OF LIFE; TO FEAR GOD AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE OF MAN. NOW, IT WAS THIS QUEEN - THE QUEEN OF SHEBA - WHO CAME TO VISIT WITH HIM BECAUSE SHE HAD HEARD IN GREAT REPORTS ABOUT HIS GREAT WISDOM AND THE GLORY OF HIS KINGDOM. AND WHEN SHE ARRIVED SHE RECEIVED THE GREAT POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED. AND AFTER SITTING DOWN AND ASKING HIM SO MANY QUESTIONS SHE REALIZED A GREAT TRUTH. AND AFTER EATING AT HIS TABLE AND SEEING EVEN THE WAY THAT SHE WAS FED AND THE GLORY OF THE VERY ROOM ITSELF AND THE MAGNITUDE OF THE KINGDOM THAT HE HAD BUILT; SEEING THE SERVANTS AS THEY WERE DRESSED AND EVEN THE IMPLEMENTS IN WHICH SHE WAS PARTAKING HER FOOD WITH, SHE REALIZED THAT THE HALF HAS NOT BEEN TOLD ME CONCERNING YOU AND ALL THE GLORY OF YOUR KINGDOM. THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID TO SOLOMON. UPON THE THEME OF THE HALF THAT HAS NOT YET BEEN TOLD - FOR THE NEXT WEEKS WE WILL BE STUDYING TOGETHER MANY THINGS ABOUT GOD FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT. THAT IS SUBJECTS THAT MAYBE THE HALF HAS NOT BEEN TOLD TO THIS WORLD OR MAYBE NOT EVEN NEAR THE HALF. AND SO WHAT WE WILL TRY TO DO IS TO REVEAL THE MESSAGE OF GOD TO YOU CONCERNING VERY MANY IMPORTANT SUBJECTS. THE POWER OF GOD I BELIEVE IS ON NEXT WEEK AND THEN THE GOSPEL WILL BE DISCUSSED; GRACE, LOVE, AND MANY OTHER GREAT TRUTHS THAT ARE FOUND IN THE NEW TESTAMENT. AND HOPEFULLY BY THE END OF THIS DISCUSSION OR THESE DISCUSSIONS YOU WILL HAVE A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF GOD'S WILL FOR YOU. IT'S MY PLEASURE THIS MORNING TO SPEAK YOU CONCERNING THE HALF IS NOT YET BEEN TOLD ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD. NOW, IF ANYTHING IS KNOWN MAYBE MORE THAN MANY OTHER THINGS IN THE SCRIPTURE OR FROM THE SCRIPTURE BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC, WHO KNOW OF THE BIBLE AND WHO RESPECT IT AT LEAST IN SOME WAY, THEY KNOW OF THE LOVE OF GOD. SO THIS MORNING IT WILL BE MY PRIVILEGE TO DISCUSS THIS VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECT.

REMEMBER IN 1 CORINTHIANS OR MAYBE YOU DO NOT REMEMBER BUT IN FIRST CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 13 VERSE 13 THERE WERE THREE THINGS THAT ARE ABIDING - FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE. AND THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID IN THIS GREAT LOVE CHAPTER - THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE. THE WORD LOVE IS GREATLY MISUSED IN THIS WORLD TODAY. PEOPLE TALK ABOUT LOVING THEIR ANIMALS. OH, I LOVE THIS PLANT. I LOVE THIS FOOD. THEY EVEN USE LOVE IN THE SENSE OF IMMORALITY. BUT YET LET US SEE WHAT THE BIBLE HAS TO SAY ABOUT LOVE. I ONLY WANT TO INVESTIGATE TWO WORDS FROM THE GREEK LANGUAGE. AND ONE IS IN REFERENCE TO A BROTHERLY LOVE THAT WE CAN SHARE WITH ONE ANOTHER REFLECTING GOD'S LOVE IN OUR LIFE. THAT IS A LOVE THAT WE HAVE FOR ONE ANOTHER. AND IT IS THE GREEK WORD FOR PHILEO. BUT THERE'S A VERY IMPORTANT WORD AND THIS IS THE LOVE THAT GOD HAS FOR US AND THE LOVE THAT WE SHOULD HAVE TOWARD EVERYONE ELSE. AND IT IS CALLED AGAPE LOVE. IT IS THAT SELFLESS LOVE - THAT STRONG, THAT DEEP, THAT DEVOTED - THAT LOVE THAT IS WILLFUL. IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE DESIRE TO HAVE FOR OTHERS. THAT PUTS OTHERS INTERESTS AND OTHERS SECURITY AND EVERYTHING ELSE BEFORE OUR OWN. THIS IS TRULY A DESCRIPTION OF THE LOVE THAT GOD HAS FOR US. AND YES DID GOD DEMONSTRATE THAT LOVE? WE KNOW VERY WELL THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE STUDENTS OF THE BIBLE - THE VERY SIMPLEST TRUTH IN ALL OF THE BIBLE IS THE LOVE OF GOD; HOW THAT HE REFLECTS EVEN LOVE HIMSELF. 1 JOHN 4 VERSE 8 SAYS: HE WHO DOES NOT LOVE DOES NOT KNOW GOD FOR GOD IS LOVE. GOD IS THE VERY EMBODIMENT OF AGAPE. SO WHEN GOD SAID - TO LOVE AND TO LOVE WITHOUT AGAPE LOVE, HE WAS SIMPLY SAYING BE LIKE ME. IS THIS THE TYPE OF LOVE THAT YOU ARE STRIVING TO HAVE? IS THIS THE TYPE OF LOVE THAT I DEMONSTRATE TO OTHERS AS GOD HAS DEMONSTRATED TO ME? HE IS THE VERY EMBODIMENT OF ALL OF THOSE ATTRIBUTES OF LOVE THAT YOU READ ABOUT IN THE BOOK OF 1 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 13. SO YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW GOD LOVES AND HOW WE ARE TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER? JUST READ 1 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 13 AND YOU'LL HAVE A FULL UNDERSTANDING, AT LEAST I HOPE SO, OF WHAT LOVE IS AS IT RELATES TO GOD BEING LOVE. NOW, DID GOD DEMONSTRATE THAT LOVE FOR US? WELL, HE CERTAINLY DID! AND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR US TO UNDERSTAND THAT TRUTH.

IF YOU TURN WITH ME TO THE BOOK OF 1 JOHN WE WILL SEE IN FIRST JOHN CHAPTER 4 VERSES NINE AND 10 A VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL OF US. IN THIS THE LOVE OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED TOWARD US THAT GOD HAS SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON INTO THE WORLD THAT WE MIGHT LIVE THROUGH HIM. IN THIS IS LOVE, NOT THAT WE LOVE GOD, BUT THAT HE LOVED US AND GAVE HIS SON TO BE THE PROPITIATION FOR OUR SINS. NOW WAIT JUST A SECOND. WHAT DOES THIS SCRIPTURE TEACH? THAT GOD WAS WILLING TO GIVE HIS ONLY SON FOR THE SATISFACTION OF OUR SINS IN HIS OWN MIND OF WHAT IS REALLY JUST AND WHAT IS JUSTICE FOR US ALL. SO WHAT WAS GOD WILLING TO DO? TO GIVE THE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. NOW YOU WELL KNOW IF YOU'RE A STUDENT OF THE BIBLE IN ANY WAY ONE OF THE GREATEST VERSES IN ALL THE BIBLE IS JOHN CHAPTER 3 VERSE 16: FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. WHAT A WONDERFUL DEMONSTRATION OF ANYONE'S LOVE FOR ANYONE ELSE. AND WHAT IS THE GREATEST DEMONSTRATION OF ANYONE'S LOVE FOR ANYONE ELSE? IT WOULD HAVE TO BE GOD'S GREAT LOVE IN GIVING HIS SON TO DIE UPON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS. ROMANS CHAPTER 5 VERSE 8: BUT GOD COMMENDED HIS LOVE OR DEMONSTRATED HIS LOVE FOR US IN THAT WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS CHRIST DIED FOR US. SO IN THE MIND OF GOD BEFORE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE WORLD, BEFORE HE CREATED MAN EVEN HIMSELF; MAN AND WOMAN IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, HE ALREADY DETERMINED THAT THIS CREATURE THAT I'M CREATING WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO SIN. HE GAVE US THE ABILITY AS FREE MORAL AGENTS TO MAKE A SELECTION IN OUR LIFE. AND THAT IS WHETHER TO OBEY GOD OR TO NOT OBEY GOD. SO KNOWING THIS HE DECIDED OKAY, HERE'S WHAT I WILL DO. I WILL PROVIDE AN AVENUE FOR MEN, THAT IS MANKIND AS THEY ARE CREATED, IN AND THROUGH JESUS CHRIST TO BE SAVED FROM THEIR OWN SINS. AND JOHN SAID, IN THE BOOK OF 1 JOHN, THAT SIN IS A TRANSGRESSION OF GOD'S LAW. SO WE KNOW THAT THIS IS REALLY A WAY AND THE GREATEST WAY THAT ANYONE COULD SHOW HIS LOVE FOR US AND THAT WAS IN THE GIVING OF HIS SON TO DIE UPON THE CROSS. BUT I HAVE SOME VERY GOOD NEWS FOR YOU. AND THIS NEWS IS FOUND IN AND THROUGH THE APOSTLE PAUL IN ROMANS CHAPTER 8 AND IT BEGINS IN THE VERSES THAT WE READ THERE IN VERSE 35 WHERE IT SAYS SIMPLY THIS: WHO SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST. AND WHAT IS THE LOVE OF CHRIST? IT IS A DEMONSTRATION OF GOD'S LOVE FOR US AND GIVING HIS SON TO DIE THE CRUELEST DEATH THAT ANY PERSON COULD DIE, THAT IS THE DEATH OF CRUCIFIXION ON A CROSS. AND THAT'S WHAT JESUS DID TO SHED HIS BLOOD FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF OUR SINS. SO WHO SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST? SHALL TRIBULATION OR DISTRESS OR PERSECUTION OR FAMINE OR NAKEDNESS OR PERIL OR SWORD/ BUT LOOK AT VERSE 37: YET IN ALL THESE THINGS WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH HIM WHO LOVED US. WHO IS THAT? GOD THE FATHER HIMSELF, FOR I'M PERSUADED THAT NEITHER DEATH NOR LIFE NOR ANGELS NOR PRINCIPALITIES NOR POWERS NOR THINGS PRESENT NOR THINGS TO COME NOR HIGHEST NOR DEATH NOR ANY OTHER CREATED THING SHALL BE ABLE TO SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD. WHAT A GREAT TRUTH THAT IS ISN'T IT! AND YES, THE HALF HAS NOT YET BEEN TOLD. ALTHOUGH WE KNOW FOR SURE ABOUT GOD'S LOVE WE KNOW HOW IT WAS DEMONSTRATED IN THE GIVING OF HIS SON ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY THE SHEDDING OF HIS SON'S BLOOD FOR THE REMISSION OF OUR SINS (REVELATION CHAPTER 1 VERSE 5) WE KNOW WE CAN HAVE ACCESS THROUGH THAT BLOOD BY BEING BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST FOR THE REMISSION OF OUR SINS ROMANS CHAPTER 6 VERSES 3 AND 4 SO I PLEAD WITH YOU TODAY TO ACCEPT THAT MARVELOUS GIFT THAT GOD GAVE IN GIVING HIS SON TO DIE UPON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS. NOW WHAT WILL BE YOUR REACTION TO THAT GREAT LOVE KNOWING THAT GREAT TRUTH? WILL YOU OBEY IT? JESUS SAID: IF YOU LOVE ME KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS. A VERY SIMPLE TRUTH BUT A VERY SIMPLE THING THAT WE MUST DO. IF WANT THE SALVATION OF OUR SOULS WE WILL NOT ONLY BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST WE WILL BE WILLING TO REPENT AS JESUS SAID OF OUR SINS, TO CONFESS HIS PRECIOUS NAME BEFORE MEN AS JESUS SAID AND BE BAPTIZED TO BE SAVED AS JESUS SAID IN MARK 16 VERSUS 15 AND 16. MY FRIEND, IT IS YOUR CHOICE. YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO BE SAVED OR LOST BUT ONE THING FOR SURE AND YOU CAN KNOW THIS. THAT GOD LOVES YOU AND HE WILL LOVE YOU UNTIL THE END. MAY GOD BLESS YOU IN MAKING THIS MOST IMPORTANT DECISION THAT YOU WILL EVER MAKE IN THIS LIFE!
