Thirsty Week 2 – It's all about love

February 21, 2009

Have you ever done something crazy for love?   Remember what it’s like at the beginning of a relationship, when your every thought is consumed with your “love”?  When you replay every conversation in your head to remember every detail and you are constantly thinking of ways to show your love.

        Revelation 2  Church at Ephesus lost its spark, lost the romance, needed to return the way it loved at first

“You have forsaken your first love.  Remember the height from which you have fallen.  Repent and do the things you did at first.”

  
The Five Love Languages– by Gary Chapman — God created them and values all of them … all of them are ways to express our worship for Him

 Words of affirmation

Compliments, words of encouragement, affirming who they are and how much they mean to you

           Daniel 3:16-18  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego

           Acts 4  Peter and John before the Sanhedrin

           Need examples of how to speak words of affirmation to God? … Psalms 92, 96, 98

 Gifts

          Invest in a deeper relationship

 Mark 12: 41-44          Widow’s offering

 Luke 7:36-47  Sinful woman washing and anointing feet of Jesus

Physical touch (engage all of our senses)

 As Matt  Redman says “soak our souls in the wonder of our Creator”

Get out into the world and revel in God’s creation, look through a telescope and marvel at the perfect design of the universe … 

 Genesis 2:9  “And the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food”

 Psalm 19

  Acts of service

         an expression of obedience and servant’s heart

 Hebrews 11:17-30  Living by faith / obedience

 John 13:1-17  Jesus washes feet of disciples

  Quality time

          Focus all energy,  share experiences, thoughts, feelings, fears

           2 Samuel 6:14  David dances

           Psalm 86  David prays

           Matthew 14  Jesus ministers to and feeds the crowd, then dismisses disciples and the crowd to be alone with God to pray
