Video Lesson: Infinite to Infinitesimal Gospel

We should know the big picture.

It is extremely helpful to know the littlest parts: how things work and what needs to be understood.

How would you define infinity? What is it?

What is the opposite of infinity? Do you know?
(Hint: It is not negative infinity!)
[In other words, what is the limit of what we should know?]

What does the Bible say?

  1. Matthew 22:36-40
    1. L                               God.
    2. L                               people.
      1. The first 3.5 C are based on the first.
      2. The second 6.5 C are based on the second.
  2. 1 Corinthians 2:1-2
    1. The best way to love God is admit J is God who loved us enough to become a h and die for our sins.
    2. The best way to love people is tell them that God became a human to die for our sins!

There is obviously more detail on how we love God and others, but that is for another lesson!

So, love God and others by reading your Bible to know Him better and to share the full Gospel with everyone!

VerseD: John 14:26

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
John 14:26, ESV

Jesus was not saying we do not need to read the Bible. Rather, the Holy Spirit will help us understand and remember what the Bible says, and He will encourage us through His Church.

VerseD: James 1:19

This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger;
James 1:19, NASB

As some say, “Listen twice, speak once.” Put another way, be patient. Maybe walk a mile in their shoes. As Jesus did, foregoing anger against those who revile Him to offer forgiveness.

VerseD: Isaiah 40:28

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.
Isaiah 40:28, ESV

The eternal God created all things, and He does not take breaks or nap (resting from creating the cosmos is not the same as ceasing activity altogether). How could we possibly understand His thoughts and understandings?

VerseD: Matthew 11:15

He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
Matthew 11:15, NASB

God’s truth is difficult for our sinful minds to accept, but seeking His wisdom and righteousness and allowing the Holy Spirit to awaken our minds helps us understand.
