Sermon for September 16th, 2018
We have started a new series called Who are the people in your neighborhood? Most people struggle to build relationships with their neighbors. Why? What would happen if every believer in our city made an attempt to build relationships with the people in the 8 households that are closest to them? The goal of this series is to inspire and equip believers to become neighborhood catalysts that move themselves and others from; Strangers to Acquaintances, and from Acquaintances to Relationship. We need to identify “neighborhood practices” that will help us to take practical steps towards becoming great neighbors.
Week 2: Taking the Great Commandment Seriously. Matthew 22:34-40. Many of us have become numb to The Great Commandment. When we try to love everyone…we often end up loving no one. If we are not intentional we end up having metaphorical love for our metaphorical neighbors and the end result is that we actually do very little. We can only do a few things really well – let’s make sure that one of them is the thing that Jesus said matters most.
Listen to the message today and be challenged by God’s Word.
