What does it look like to love people without fear? What does it look like to care about your neighbors, friends and even your enemies? As Jesus walked the earth, he was the perfect example of what it means to show extravagant generosity and humble service. He loved without bounds so others could encounter Him. Jesus calls us to do the same. In our next sermon series, we’ll learn what it looks like to respond to that call. How would our lives be different if we looked at Jesus’ example and said, “So will I”?
