Here is the Supplementary video that Jeff talks about during the sermon:
Love today seems so selfish and indulgent. What should real love look like and how can I show real love to others?
Our world has defined love too narrowly, so it leaves one wondering; what does real love look like? What we generally refer to as love, looks indulgent, is fun, automatic, a resource, and something that might not always work out. The world takes love for granted and throws the word around with careless abandon.
Real love looks like God’s commandments and can be summed up with, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” So if you were to not follow those rules, you wouldn’t be loving your neighbor as yourself. Pastor Jeff uses the example of stealing from someone or trying to kiss another man’s wife. Those things are not showing love to that person. Instead of just doing what feels good to you, doing what you want, you must consider the other person.
Real love takes work, attention, resources, is a sacrifice and never ends. Jesus showed us real love by giving up his life for our sins. He didn’t see our sins and say, ‘Well I don’t think this is going to work out.’ No! He made the ultimate sacrifice, his love for us was and is never ending. We need to have the same kind of love for one another. Real love is loving your neighbor as yourself.
