Message Monday 9/25/17 – Love Your Neighbor Through The Church: The Mission Of Jesus

Chuck Foreman – Teaching / Missions Pastor

God has called us to join him in the battle against injustice in our world, rescuing and restoring lives in the name and power of Jesus, the Savior of the World. Part of our motivation for combating injustice in our world is learning true empathy.  According to Webster, Empathy is “the power of understanding and imaginatively entering into another’s feelings.”  Wow! How good are we at dong that?  God’s Word actually tells us, straight out, to be empathetic.  Check this out…

“Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison,
and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

(Hebrews 13:3)

This is another aspect of our calling as the People of God—it’s who we are and what we do.  Evil will not prevail in our broken world if we refuse to be overcome by evil, but instead, overcome evil with good.

(Romans 12:21)
