Love Your Neighbor

Jesus told us in Mark 12 that we should “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength (and) ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”  That is easy to say, but not always seemingly easy to do.  Sometimes we really just want to pull into the garage, close the door, go inside and shut out the world.  But when we sit down and read God’s Word, we are constantly…

Greatest Example – To become disciple-makers, we need to study the life of the original…
