1. New love requires a new standard

“Unsolicited advice always comes across as criticism.”

Jim Burns

“You will watch a generation of Christians set the Bible aside in an attempt to become more like Jesus. And stunningly it will sound completely plausible. This will be perhaps the cleverest of all the devil’s schemes in your generation. Sacrifice TRUTH for LOVE’s sake. And you will rise or fall based upon whether you will sacrifice one for the other. Will you have the courage to live in the tension of both TRUTH & LOVE?”

Beth Moore

2. New love requires a new relationship to others

Romans 12:10
Philippians 2:3

“Human dignity, not depravity must be the starting point of anthropology.”

John Calvin

3. New love requires serving The Lord

Romans 12:11
1 Peter 4:10-11
Matthew 6:24

4. New love requires patience

Romans 12:12

5. New love requires sharing

Romans 12:13

“For mere improvement is not redemption, though redemption always improves people even here and now and will, in the end, improve them to a degree we cannot yet imagine. God became man to turn creatures into sons: not simply to produce better men of the old kind but to produce a new kind of man. It is not like teaching a horse to jump better and better but like turning a horse into a winged creature. Of course, once it has got its wings, it will soar over fences which could never have been jumped and thus beat the natural horse at its own game. But there may be a period, while the wings are just beginning to grow, when it cannot do so: and at that stage the lumps on the shoulders—no one could tell by looking at them that they are going to be wings—may even give it an awkward appearance.”

C.S. Lewis
