Pursuing Community A Kingdom Culture
The kingdom of God is about real people and relationships.
How easy do we take people and relationships for granted? The Kingdom is about our relationship with God and each other.
Make God your greatest treasure! Love is observable; seen in action. If you love Me, you will obey Me.
We are to love people the same way we value God – not above God, but to value them in a loving, caring manner, building up, speaking truth in love; finding practical ways to bless, encourage, meet needs together.
Matthew 22:36-39 (NIV)
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]
