2008. 5. 18 Sunday Sermon at Yoido Full Gospel Church – Seoul, Korea Speaker: Rev. Yonggi Cho, Senior Pastor Website: www.fgtv.com Sharing Love and Happiness John 3:16, NIV "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Introduction: All of us want to be loved and be happy. However, we cannot learn to be loved and be happy. Today, I would like to find the way to be loved and be happy. 1. Satan who is the most miserable in the universe. Satan is a slave to greed. He will never be satisfied even though he possesses us in full measure. 1) Satan coveted the throne of God (Isa 14:12-15). 2) Satan tempted Adam to do the same to become like God (Ge 3:4-5). 3) Satan tried to tempt Jesus with greed—the lust of material, fame, and power (Mt 4:3-10). 4) Greed and self interest are fallen man’s nature—envy, anger, strife, deceit, and malice (Ro 1:29-30). 2. God who is the happiest in the universe. God is happy and satisfied by giving to us endlessly: sun, air, water, and plants (Ge 1:1; 1Ti 6:17). 1) God gave us His one and only son Jesus (Jn 3:16-17). 2) Jesus gave us salvation (Ac 4:12; 16:31). 3) Jesus gave His life on the Cross (1Pe 2:24; Mt 20:28). 4) The Holy Spirit gave himself to us (Jn 14:18; 2Co 1:21-22). 3. In order to share love and happiness. 1) The parable of a man who fell into the hands of robbers (Lk 10:30). ⓛ A legalist—blames, criticizes, judges, and condemns. ② A ritualist—is self-centered and unsympathetic. ③ A Good Samaritan—he shared what he had (oil, wine, clothes, and donkey) (Lk 10:33-34). This man enjoyed the greatest joy and happiness in life. 2) A life that serves Jesus on earth (Mt 25:35-40) 3) Give, and it will be given to you (Lk 6:38). When we sow love and happiness, we will reap love and happiness (2Co 9:6-8). Conclusion: God uses us to share His love and happiness with others. It is an inexpressible privilege and glory to serve our God as His instrument.
