This is a sermon that was preached on the second Sunday of Advent on the theme of Love. It is based on Romans 5:5 in which the theme of love is directly connected to the subject of hope, which was the theme of last week’s sermon. The Apostle Paul emphasizes the fact that adversity ultimately produces hope, and hope does not embarrass us or shame us, because God’s love is poured out into our hearts, enabling us to share the nature of Christ.
