“Expiration Date and the Limitless Love of God”                                                     

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 6:11-18 NIV

Points of Focus:

  • God’s flow of love

  • Relationships that leave you

  • Come out, be separate and move on up higher

  • No limits in Christ

2 Corinthians 6:1-12 NIV

1 As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.

2 For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you,

and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

3 We put no stumbling block in anyone’s path, so that our ministry will not be discredited.

4 Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses;

5 in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;

6 in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;

7 in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left;

8 through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors;

9 known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed;

10 sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

11 We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you.

12 We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us.

13 As a fair exchange—I speak as to my children—open wide your hearts also.

14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?

16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”

17 Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate,

says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”

18 And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

A Life Without Limits

Gail Casteen

What if we lived life without limits? Not without boundaries, but without LIMITS! If we are living lives of confinement and limitation, how did it happen? Have there been insurmountable obstacles or burdens too heavy to carry? Or have we misunderstood God? Have we restricted the very lives that Jesus lived, died, and lives again to provide?

My son was born with an open heart and an open abdomen. At 3-years-old, he was too young to understand why he had scars running from his throat to his manmade belly button. Scars were normal for him. In spite of the birth defects and scars, running was his “favorite fun.” He knew his boundaries (he stayed in the yard) but he knew no limits (he ran to his heart’s content). The fact that he had scars did not affect his life.

We all have scars. Physical scars and emotional scars are part of life. We do not have to be limited by our scars, nor do we have to be limited by fear. Hurts and fears can stop us dead in our tracks, if we let them.Paul says this about hurt places:

 

“…for Christ's sake, we should delight in weaknesses,

in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.

For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

(2 Corinthians 12:10)
