When Good News Moves into Your Neighborhood

February 15, 2017

The issue isn’t who is your neighbor; it’s will you be a neighbor?

Jesus said the entire law of God is summed up and fulfilled when we love God and our neighbor as we love ourselves. Imagine cities across a nation, sprinkled with Christ-followers living in condos, houses, and apartment buildings, who have taken Jesus’ words to heart. They have committed to tangibly love their neighbors, and neighborhoods, as they love themselves. They have committed to be the salt of the earth, as Jesus said we are to be. What does it look like when we view our neighborhoods as the place in which the Lord has placed us … to serve him and accomplish his purposes?
