In Matthew 22:37 Jesus calls the believer to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”. The Bible clearly speaks of God’s love for us, when we encounter that love our desire should be to return it by showing our adoration and thankfulness through worship and prayer. This may be in a corporate setting, such as our Sunday morning Service or one of our midweek Classes, it may be in the intimacy of a Sunday School Class Our hope is that our devotion and love for God will grow as we faithfully and sincerely seek Him together.
In Matthew 22:39 Jesus tells the believer to “love your neighbor as yourself”. Our desire is to show love through fellowship with one another, meeting together to study God’s Word and by encouraging one another.
Caring for the needs of others, through prayer, SOS park ministry, Laundry of Love, Sunday Evening Park Ministry and assistance is also vital to our fulfillment of Jesus’ command. Our love for Christ must be more than words, it must be acted out in love for and service to, others.
