Product DescriptionPart 1 - It's Not In Me (Clay Scroggins)
Following Jesus requires us to love. It moves us to look at the world around us - a world full of problems, brokenness, and suffering - and ask, "What does love require of me?" But what if love requires more than we have to give? What if we're just not strong enough, courageous enough, or good enough to do what love requires?
Can love require more of you than you have to give? Yes . . . if you try to rely on your own strength, courage and goodness. But if you remain in Jesus, you'll have everything you need to love abundantly. Remaining in Jesus will determine your desire and ability to do what love requires of you. John 15:5
Part 2 - River of Love (Clay Scroggins)
Whether it's your house, your car, or even your body, things tend to deteriorate over time. No one wants to become a worse person over time. we all want to grow - to become better versions of ourselves. But how do we do that? God's love is not contingent on your obedience. Your obedience is impossible without God's love.
Abiding in Christ is the secret to continual growth and improvement over the course of your entire life. In him, you can produce fruit: love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Apart from him, you can do nothing. John 15:12-13
Part 3 - Even When It Hurts (Clay Scroggins)
When life isn't going as we expected, we may feel discouraged, defeated, or even devastated During those seasons, we spend a lot of energy trying to get rid of or avoid whatever is causing our pain. We love comfort and happiness, so we pray for God to intervene on our behalf. We ask him to remove the tings that make our lives less than perfect. But what if God is up to something in the midst of our suffering - something more profound than comfort and happiness?
When your circumstances leave you feeling discouraged, defeated, or devastated, you want God to remove the source of your pain. But what it that's not in your best interest? Maybe the greatest thing he can do for you is not remove your pain but use it. Maybe there is a level of your life you can only reach if you allow him to use it.
