My First sermon as Alicia Neal

Just how do you prepare your first sermon as a trans woman and what would be a great topic to begin to study and present to others in the body of Christ well I was thinking about this I thought what was extended to me well lets look at this one scripture,16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 (KJV) the main thing here that we see is God Him self showed us His Love and he has and dose love us unconditionally with out any regard to our race or our gender regardless of our financial state and to have him live in our lives is just one thing that we are requierd to do is to believe in the son of the living God , the New living translation reads this 16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 (NLT) and we go on to read this .17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:16-17 (NLT) Jesus said this in Matt 7 1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Matt 7:1-2 (KJV) and look at 1 `Judge not, that ye may not be judged, 2 for in what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged, and in what measure ye measure, it shall be measured to you

Matt 7:1-2 (YLT)1 `Judge not, that ye may not be judged, 2 for in what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged, and in what measure ye measure, it shall be measured to you

Matt 7:1-2 (YLT) all we are required to do as Christians is this 8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

Micah 6:8 (KJV)the main point here is that God Love the whole World not just the so called Holy people and get this James says this about true religion 26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

James 1:26-27 (KJV)

John goes on to say this about those who say they walk in love lets look at this what he says about Love 15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

1 John 3:15-16 (KJV)

16 We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters

1 John 3:16 (NLT)

so in a nut shell I guess my first sermon will be on the Love of God
