You know that verse from John? Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. I truly believe God calls each of us to commit ourselves to loving others as He loves us. Think of agape love. If you’re not sure what it is, it’s the love of God or Christ for mankind…an unconditional love. If you’re a believer, think for a moment if you truly practiced what you preached. Forgiving one another 70 x’s 7, loving your neighbor…what lovely lessons for us all. I love my friends to pieces and thank God daily for their presence on this journey.
Our good friend Matthew had it in his heart to start a church in our hometown for years. To finally see his vision become reality is such a blessing. As we compose the team, it’s clear that LOVE is such a vital piece to this beating heart for our community. We pray for our brother in Christ, our pastor, as he heeds your call to "Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction" (2 Timothy 4:2).
