This weekend as we say goodbye to summer, we also put a final stamp on our HEART ISSUES series. And while our heart issues are many, perhaps the one that most challenges us is our ability to love the people where we live. Real love moves into real life...

Message Map

“GOD MOVED INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD”

John 1:14

The Word became flesh and blood,
    and moved into the neighborhood.
We saw the glory with our own eyes,
    the one-of-a-kind glory,    
    like Father, like Son.
Generous inside and out,
    true from start to finish.
 

  • John 1:1

     

1. Full of grace ~ generous inside and out



2. Full of truth ~ true from the start to finish

 

  • Philippians 2:7-8

This weekend we say goodbye to summer, and we also put a final stamp on our HEART ISSUES series. And while our heart issues are many, perhaps the one that most challenges us is our ability to love the people where we live. Real love moves into real life... Daily devotionals that accompany each day's reading are also available on Facebook. They are created by a great Ginghamsburg unpaid servant team. You do not have to be a Facebook user to access them.

MONDAY: John 1:14-18
God became one of us and moved into our neighborhood. Does that affect your picture of God? What was God’s motivation? If God’s Spirit, the Holy Spirit, is alive in us, what are we supposed to do in our neighborhoods? City? Region? World?

TUESDAY: Genesis 18:1-15
Abraham welcomed strangers into his home. These strangers were messengers from God. How open is your home? Do you ever welcome guests? What are your hesitations?

WEDNESDAY: Luke 19:37-44
Jesus wept for the city of Jerusalem. Have you ever experienced pain or emotion over a town, city or region? Write a prayer for the place that you live in, and ask God to help be an answer to that prayer.

THURSDAY: Acts 14:1-7
Paul had a strategy for sharing Jesus with towns and cities. What do you see Paul doing in Acts 14? Do you ever share your faith? How can Paul’s strategy inform how you share your faith with others?

FRIDAY: Psalm 122
Where is your Jerusalem? Why do you live in the town, city or region you live in? How is God asking you to pray for the peace of your Jerusalem?

SATURDAY: Luke 10:25-37
“Who is your neighbor?” Have you ever asked yourself that question? What does Jesus say about being a “good” neighbor?

SUNDAY: John 3:16-21
Why did God send Jesus to the world? Was it to fix the world? Why was LOVE God’s motivation? Is LOVE your motivation for serving God? If not, what is?
