JULY SERMON SERIES
“Stay in Love With God”
July 1 – July 29, 2018
The founder of the UMC, John Wesley, developed what he called the “General Rules” to help the early Methodists live their Christian faith and be good disciples. For Wesley, the “mark of a Methodist” is a way of life, not just a set of beliefs. To guide Methodists in a way of life, Wesley said we should follow “Three Simple Rules.” The “Three Simple Rules” are:
- Do no harm.
- Do good.
- Stay in love with God.
We will focus on the third simple rule which is the foundation for practicing the other rules. We will explore how nurturing our relationship with God is the foundation for being a good disciple.
