Fusion: week of 2/26


1 John 4:7  -  5:5

Love for other believers is a vital sign that proves we have been born of God.

1.  Love is the Evidence That We Know God, and the Motivation for
     Living Obediently

     (1 John 4:7-8;  Matthew 22:34-40;  Romans 13:8-10)

     Love is a critical test that reveals whether or not you really know God.
2.  God Demonstrated Real Love When He Gave His Son's Life for Us

     (1 John 4:9-10;  16b-18;  John 3:16)

    Jesus' death on the cross is the greatest demonstration of love.
3.  God's Divine Love Prompts Us to Love Others

     (1 John 4:11-12;  19-21;  5:1-5)

     God's love for us creates in us a love for others.

Romans 14:1-23

The salvation that comes through faith in Jesus revolutionizes our
relationships with others.

1.  Accept and Live in Harmony with Others No Matter Where They are
     on Their Journey of Faith

     (Romans 14:1-4)

     We are to accept others even when they disagree with us over
     secondary issues.
2.  We Are Part of an Interdependent Community Under the Lordship
     of Christ

     (Romans 14:5-9)

     Living under the Lordship of Christ allows for a graceful
     acceptance of differences.
3.  We are to Focus on Our Own Relationship with God and Leave
     Leave Judgment to Him

     (Romans 14:10-12)

     We must remember that God is the judge, not us.

4.  Be Careful Not to Harm Others as You Live in Freedom and Grace

     (Romans 14:13-23)

     It is wrong to exercise your liberty in a way that causes another 
     Christian to sin.

Fusion: week of 2/12


Psalm 103:1-14

This psalm explains why believers should be eager to worship the Lord.

1.  Forgiveness Leads to Joy and Worship

     (Psalm 103:1-5;  Nehemiah 8:9-12)

     The forgiveness that God offers is meant to replace the pain of our
     fallen state with the satisfaction of a renewed state of being.
2.  Forgiveness is Based on God's Character, Not Ours

     (Psalm 103:6-10;  Exodus 34:1-10)

     All God does flows from His unchanging character. Forgiveness is
     about Who God is, not who we are.
3.  God Forgives Us in Spite of Our Weakness

     (Psalm 103:11-14;  Romans 5:6-11;  Hebrews 4:14-16)

     As a parent's concern for his child transcends that child's behavior,
     so does our Lord's care for us go beyond our actions.

Ephesians 2:1-10

Scripture is clear that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone,
in Christ alone.

1.  Our Salvation is Based on Who God Is, Not on What We Have Done

     (Ephesians 2:1-5;  Romans 3:21-26;  5:15-21;  11:5-6)

     God demonstrates overwhelming mercy, love, and grace when He
     saves us.
2.  We Are Saved to Bring God Glory

     (Ephesians 2:6-8; Philippians 2:3-13; Colossians 1:15-20)

     Our efforts do not make us more praiseworthy than others, but
     demonstrate His power and praiseworthiness.
3.  We Are Saved to Do Good Works That Draw People to God

     (Ephesians 2:8-10; 2 Corinthians 4:1-6;  5:16-21)

     Salvation from Jesus produces service to Jesus.
