Love In Action

Transcript: God does not save by love, He saves by grace. And that’s love in action. You see, labor is foreign and contrary and the opposite of love. It just doesn’t go along with it. But, you see, love will labor, and when it does, it just doesn’t seem to be labor. Like that little girl was carrying a heavy baby, and a man, when she went by, said to her, he says, “Little girl, isn’t that baby too heavy for you?” And she said, “No, he’s my brother.” Makes all the difference in the world. It’s a labor of love. And the Lord Jesus, He put it right on the line. He says, “If you love me, keep my commandments.” And if you don’t love Him, why, I don’t think it’s worthwhile to try and keep them, friend.

About Church of the Open Door
Built in 1914, the 4000-seat Church of the Open Door was conceived by R. A. Torrey who had come to Los Angeles to start a Bible institute (now known as Biola University) similar to Moody Bible Institute. Other pastors have included Louis T. Talbot (1932–1948) and J. Vernon McGee (1949–1970). The church is strictly non-denominational, though Evangelical. Its mission was to reach the lost of Los Angeles, which was reflected in the name ‘Church of the Open Door’ based on two passages of Scripture:

“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” - Jesus Christ, John 10:9 KJV

“I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” - Jesus Christ, Revelation 3:8 KJV
