BACK TO MARK HUGHES: TV MESSAGES

Paradox Principles/ A More Excellent Way

August 25th, 2013 – Mark Hughes

Life is full of paradoxes (seemingly absurd but possibly true statements).  We use them every day and scarcely even take notice.  For example: Don’t go near the water until you learn how to swim.  Life is also full of paradoxical principles, immutable laws that, though they seem absurd, are true and we ignore at our own peril.  Many of the most important ones come from Scripture, and in this unique series Pastor Mark explores some of the most counterintuitive of these life-transforming principles.

Part 4:

The Apostle Paul first claims that ‘love’ is the more excellent way and then goes on to say that ‘love never fails’.  It is one thing to love our friends and family, but it is a paradox to love our enemies.  This is the one paradox principle that can change everything.  In this challenging concluding message, Pastor Mark points to the path of a more excellent way.
