What is Love

Warning” this message is rated “FOR Mature AUDIENCES” not for Spiritual children.

This sermon has been released only because of many requests by those in attendance when it was delivered Sunday Sept. 21st 2014. Huffman Church only releases our teaching series, and normally does not allow our live preaching during services to be released. This is due to our congregations desire to hear no holds barred, not always politically correct sermons. Word based messages that correct, rebuke, and of course instruct can be offensive to those that cannot receive correction or redirection. Misunderstanding the love that is behind these messages from the heart of Pastors for the good of people’s future can choke those that cannot yet eat meat. As you listen to this lesson please remember this is a message of love to awake your spiritual hunger.

The mystery of this parable is we all owe a debt we have no means to pay. If it were not for a merciful creditor we all would be held in debtors’ prison.

Jesus was the master of teaching in parables. His parables often have an unexpected twist or surprise ending that catches the reader’s attention. They are also cleverly designed to draw listeners into new ways of thinking, new attitudes and new ways of acting (Getty-Sullivan, pp. 2-4).

Each of Jesus’ parables teaches only one or two important lessons. It is a mistake to look for meaning in every sentence or detail of the story (Lockyer, Parable). If we get bogged down analyzing the details of the parable, we may miss the central point, as in the proverbial saying, “You can’t see the forest for the trees.”
