Another series for the files! A sermon normally gets one airing, and then it’s bound for the files (although for me those files are kept on the computer). The themes may be recycled as the need arises, but a particular homily is forever retired after a single presentation. “God is Love” has thus far been my favorite series of sermons to preach; more could have been said on the subject, but it’s time to develop a fresh theme. Still, I couldn’t help but think of the possibilities for sermons that simply begin with “God is…”

… a compassionate God (Deut. 4:31).
… not a man that He should lie or repent (Num. 23:19).

… the one who goes with you (Deut. 20:4; 31:6).

… He who fights for you (Josh. 23:3, 10).
