ICA Moscow || LOVE YOURSELF | Sermon By Pastor Atienza Leni

[Music] [Music] [Applause] which is the great commandment in the law jesus said to him you shall love the lord your god with all your heart with all your soul and with all your mind this is the first and great commandment and the second is you shall love your neighbor as yourself [Music] it says i will praise you for i am fearfully and wonderfully made marvelous are you worth and that [Music] we have heard so many sermons speaking about loving god and loving others but very seldom about self-love or loving yourself not the same importance you [Music] because otherwise jesus will not include it and say don’t get me wrong does not mean being selfish or narcissistic [Music] selfishness is lacking consideration to others [Music] and narcissism is an extensive interest or admirations of one’s son no a [Music] [Music] okay so to differentiate between self-love and selfishness we find it in philippians chapter 2 verse 2 to 4. uh fulfill my joy by being like-minded having the same love saying love loving god loving others steal others better than himself [Music] each of you look out not only for your own interests my own interests but also for the interests of others of course does include god’s interests and others interests in serious incidents jesus exemplify all this love in one accord [Music] when he died on the cross he loves god by obeying and doing his father’s will and commandment obedient [Music] loves so much of the father of god that even he was stunted in many ways the same as we are but still he remains sinless uh is [Music] that’s why the bible says he is the perfect sacrificial nun to take away our sins 13 he says greater love has no one than this that know that the one should lay down his life for his friends he loves himself so much because he knew and understood that the value of successful life is not measured by saving oneself but losing it for a greater purpose but at the end [Music] [Music] he is so full of love [Music] and during the night we have this discussion and you know like one eye like you’re sitting on the with the farm then you talk um how are you going to find beauty in your own ways and the second one is how and what do you do to show to yourselves that you love yourself you stood [Music] so hearing every testimonial of laughter and sorrow we have all come to this conclusion we find ourselves so busy loving others that we forgot to love ourselves foreign that actually loving yourself first helps you to love other person even better yes [Music] i still don’t get it is to have a fair and unshakeable appreciations or acceptance of your particular gifts your talents and abilities [Music] i mean your physical pictures and awareness of your potential our english [Music] is the ability to completely estimate your self-worth from the inside as opposed to allowing the world to to underestimate you from being outside of so later i will tell you an example so [Music] [Music] others [Music] because he first loved and having the right love for god and for his words then we can be able to love others yes [Music] [Music] because we cannot is the biggest contribution [Music] it is like a disease a cancer in ourselves that impedes our heart our harmony among our brethren our family means scriptures clearly tell us that we cannot truly love others unless we love ourselves sometimes i have to think maybe no this is the reason that’s why [Music] and that many of us are still laughing of self-love [Music] but in reality we have to first fall in love with ourselves [Music] but will you be surprised if i told you that many of our heartaches and disappointments are not actually caused by others but rather by ourselves of beauty because you find and no beauty as the world defines it i am that can lead to manipulations of others leading to bitterness and resentment to hatred and murder emotions in remember jesus says if you hate your brother or your sister you are a murderer [Music] a [Music] because sometimes we are so busy you know idolizing and encouraging others we say oh i appreciate you you’re so good but did you ever talk to yourself sometimes that and look at the mirror [Music] [Music] so signs that you don’t you don’t love yourself when you have this unconscious self-hatred we [Music] [Music] it says not that we dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who are commanding themselves but when they master themselves by another and compare themselves with another they are without understanding [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] well because there are no people in this world [Music] you don’t love yourselves when you are in constantly needed a problem with [Music] [Applause] as if you your life and your looks are based on the opinion of other people and the third thing is that you don’t love yourself enough when you are not comfortable to show [Music] oh have you [Music] especially when you are in a dating situation yes [Music] [Music] you’re not comfortable yourself showing the real [Music] um [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Laughter] me [Music] the scripture says by the grace of god i not it is right to love ourselves because self-love is the basis for loving others [Music] that when he says in ephesians 5 29 no one ever hated his own body but he feeds and cares for it just as christ does with the choice [Music] loving yourself is having the understanding and self-awareness that you are beautiful agreeing and confirming to yourself without needing the validation from the others is i will never forget those days when i was in in grade 3 i was 9 or 10 years old i was bullied by other girls really i was fooling because and but every day that i would go to the school i would say to myself that i am beautiful [Music] [Music] and it becomes a thing inside that later on it monitors to the outside [Music] of our nation then because of that even until now i always said and looked to the mirror and said to myself i am beautiful [Music] [Music] [Music] some [Music] [Music] but [Music] [Music] and as we are continually growing and growing and growing in grace [Music] the scripture says i will praise the lord for i am fearfully and wonderfully made marvelously worse that my soul knows very well [Music] [Music] [Music] sometimes we have to look ourselves as god sees us that he loves us [Music] [Music] how about those people who were born into this world without leaves without hands without no end of the day aka [Music] [Music] appearances we are beautiful especially when we know and understand that council and god’s purpose why he created us you as you and me as it doesn’t matter whether other people would reject you or not accept you because god himself says i will never ever reject you self-knowledge is the key to all relationship because understanding yourself will help you to understand other people as well [Music] uh [Music] [Music] anything that will make you happy enjoy doing things that makes you happy ways to repeat stress go date yourself alone sit have coffee eat your favorite brownies or cheesecake um the bible says jesus himself always finds himself wanted to be alone biblically he did some people they are not so comfortable dating themselves during valentine’s day because everybody is able [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Music] when you see yourself as accepted and who you are it will never change that’s why the other way also to love yourself is to forgive yourself [Music] [Music] the scripture says in romans 8 1 therefore careful there is no condemnation in christ jesus christ [Music] until now we are so overburdened by our guilt that has happened in the past god is covered by his grace by his love by the blood of jesus [Music] [Music] and because they were blaming david because their families had gone it was taken [Music] the scripture says they sometimes we find ourselves in that situation we did something mistakes or did we find [Music] ourselves and then we started our [Music] i remember one of the five languages of love it says one of it is word affirmation [Music] [Music] maybe let’s do that to ourselves encourage and say good words about ourselves [Music] is [Music] [Music] encourage yourself and know and understand your identity in christ jesus [Music] christ that i am a child of god saved by grace through faith repeal from the hand of the enemy an ear of eternal life forgiven led by the spirit of [Music] [Music] that wherever that i am strong in the lord and [Applause] [Music] i for i am wonderfully and fearfully created in christ jesus and that my soul knows it very well [Music] [Music] maybe some of us here this is like oh i never thought that i have to love myself the things that we did it kind of like because like we are down we’re not worried about or maybe sometimes you ask yourself what is wrong with me why it’s so difficult for me to get along with other people [Music] maybe [Music] [Music] no right now gramma [Music] encourage yourself forgive yourself [Music] because god loves you as you are only the devil is interested in your class because he don’t want but god is so much love you that he invests so much in you because god sees you of what you will become in christ jesus [Music] [Music] may not be perfect [Music] if [Music] like the caterpillar [Music] is [Music] you know like [Music] [Music] foreign you
