A GTBC study through Matthew 5-7Title: What Love Is

Text: Matthew 5:43-48

Overview: Jesus calls His disciples to a distinctive, supernatural, liberally-extended love (even to enemies), rather than an ordinary, natural, selfishly-limited love (to people who love us). This love He both wonderfully demonstrates and powerfully enables in the Gospel!

1 critical error: unbiblical love

2 oxymoronic commands: Christian love

3 massive truths: the Father’s love

4 rhetorical questions: distinctive love

11 grace-filled words: supernatural love
