ABOUT

 

This is simple. This is what God is calling us to do. These are biblical statements, and this is our goal as a body. We won’t always live up to this, and that isn’t a surprise to God, but this has to be our goal.
 
 

Love God – We are to passionately pursue God above all else.

Jesus says it’s the greatest commandment, to love God with our of our heart, mind and strength. We must first and foremost make sure we are reconciled to him as we discussed last week. This vertical reconciliation takes precedence. We love him, because he first loved us. So our job as a body is to passionately pursue God.
 
 

Love People – We are to radically love all people

Jesus says to love God is the greatest commandment and he says that the second one is to love your neighbor as yourself. This is not an option. This has a lot of ramifications for this body and how we interact with our community. We have to love our neighbors. We cannot just expect another church to do it or someone else to come along and do it. We have to do it.
 
 

Live the Mission – We will actively disciple others through relationships into passionate love for the Father and for other people.

And next we have to live out the mission that Jesus has given us. He said at the end of his time here on earth that we are to go into all the world and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey whatsoever I have commanded you. There’s a lot to unpack here, but needless to say, this is our driving force, this last statement is interlocked with the other two. We must first love God, then we can love our neighbor. And the way we show our love for God and love for our neighbor is to live out his mission. To follow his commands.
