Christmas 2011 - Love
Isaiah 54.1-10
God has immovable love.
What kind of love is this immovable love?
    • Abounding (Numbers 14.18)
    • Atones for iniquity (Proverbs 16.6)
    • Better than life (Psalm 63.3)
    • Comforting (Psalm 119.76)
    • Crowns us (Psalm 103.4)
    • Cuts off our enemies (Psalm 143.12)
    • Earth is full of steadfast love (Psalm 33.5)
    • Endures all day (Psalm 52.1)
    • Gives us life (Psalm 119.88)
    • God will meet me in His steadfast love (Psalm 59.10)
    • Good (Psalm 69.16)
    • Holds us up (Psalm 94.18)
    • High as the heavens (Psalm 36.5)
    • Not removed from me (Psalm 66.20)
    • Precious (Psalm 36.7)
    • Preserving (Psalm 40.11)
    • Satisfies us in the morning (Psalm 90.14)
    • Saving (Psalm 31.16)
    • Surrounding (Psalm 32.10)
    • Watches over me (Psalm 61.7)
    • Endures forever (44 times in the OT)
How do we know His love is immovable?
First, because He promised.
    • But I’m not one in God’s favor (v.1-3).
    • But I don’t have anything to offer (v.4-5).
    • But I have too much baggage (v.6-8).
    • But God’s people didn’t love me, so He must not either.
Second, because He secured His promise.
    • Isaiah 52.13-53.12
    • He punished the Savior for your sin.
    • He dealt with the divide so you can be united to Him.
What is our response?
    • To love God in return.
    • To love others on His behalf. 
      • Because God’s love is immovable, we are free to love others knowing that the well from which we draw will never run dry.
