Love Our Neighbor

 “One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him this question: ‘Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus replied, ‘What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?’ The man answered, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ‘Right!’ Jesus told him. ‘Do this and you will live.”
Luke 10:25-28 (NLT)

We do this because of our love for people. “We love, because God first loved us” (1 John 4:19). John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the WORLD that He gave is only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” It is our calling to share this incredible news with others even if it means stepping outside our comfort zones. Together let’s pray that God will give us a heart for people, and that He will open opportunities for us to share His love with them.
