Jesus said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. And love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:36-40)
Jesus knew we can’t love God if we don’t love others and we can’t love others if we don’t love God. Or, put another way; If we don’t love the people around us how can we say we love God with all our heart, soul, and mind? This is who we are called to be as Jesus followers and the church. We have an incredible opportunity to be good neighbors and care for people and the world around us.
The world doesn’t need more Christians inviting people to church.
The world needs more Christians caring for them and being the church.
The rhythms and practices of worship (for God), community (for People), and mission (for a Change) help us be good neighbors and love God with all our heart, soul, and mind.
