Here is a free sermon series on Radical Love for your youth group!
The love of Jesus is radical. He pushes past personality types, personal opinions, and even prejudice. Jesus loves people that culture turns their backs on. This includes the marginalized, disenfranchised, and ostracized. Jesus loves them. Jesus died for them. Jesus pursues them. You have never laid eyes on a person that Jesus didn’t love. In this series, we will study three stories that exemplify the radical love of Jesus, and learn how to apply the same lens of love to our own lives.
This is how the free sermon series on radical love breaks down:
Week 1: God’s Love: Radical. Relational. Right Now.
We all love love! From the songs on the radio to the movies on the big screen, we love to watch a love story unfold. Our culture’s obsession with love has also made us grow detached from the true meaning. In the same breath, we can say we love biscuits and gravy while also saying we love God. Those two must be different, right? In this session, we are going to learn the nature of the most radical love of all time — the love of Jesus for you.
Scripture: Luke 19:1-9
Week 2: Live Like Jesus & Love Like Jesus
What is the Church known for? According to news outlets and online blogs, the Church is frequently criticized for its judgmental outlook and political leanings. It’s heart breaking. We must refuse to become known better for screaming at people than serving people. In this message, we will examine our call to love like Jesus and live like Jesus.
Scripture: Luke 10:25-37
Week 3: Judas Ate Too
As Jesus sat down with his twelve disciples for the last supper, He knew that Judas would betray him. And yet, Jesus served Judas. We should be thankful that Judas ate. Why Because it gives us hope. It’s a hard truth, but we all have a little Judas in us. We can be unloving, ungrateful and even unfaithful to Jesus. That doesn’t stop Him from loving us. There was room at the table for Judas, which means that there is room at the table for you too. Even when you are at your worst, Jesus still pulls out a chair and makes a plate for you. That’s radical love.
Scripture: Matthew 26:20, 25-30
