Sermons on love can have both sacred and secular dimensions. While it is God's love for the world which is the backbone of all Christian faiths, it is our love for each other that changes the world from day to day. People devote their entire lives to finding love and trying to understand it.

What Is Demanded of Us by Sermons on Love

Love songs, love poems, romantic movies ... the list of the images of love with which we are bombarded in popular culture goes on and on. Greeting card companies make millions of dollars each year putting the words to sentiments people do not feel adequately equipped to expressed, though they are words we wish to say to the most important and unique people in our lives. Sermons on love can demand that we raise the bar, understanding the nature of love and working to be better at giving it.

1 Corinthians 13 is often thought to be the most perfect Biblical text on love between people. Verse 2 contains the line, " ... if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing." Verses 4-8 continue with one of the most famous scriptures recited at weddings, about the nature of love being patient, kind, not proud or boastful. Love must be pure and absolute in its loyalty, trust, faith, and generosity.

While you often hear these passages at weddings, there is much to be said about them which could be more adequately undertaken within a sermon. While in the throes of romantic love, we are often blind and foolish; it is only when we think about love as something which families, parents, children, spouses, and the closest of friends share, not only with each other but with God, that we begin to see the true nature of love that endures and inspires us to be our best. While some feel that they could go on for hours about love without stopping to take a breath, other find the subject more intimidating to talk about. If you are looking for words, scriptures, or sermons on love, you will find a number of sources on the Internet with both sensitive and sophisticated examples of text that may help you understand and communicate about this topic.
