We just wrapped up the sermon series “Invited.” It was a powerful walk-through of the invitations of Jesus. His desire was that we join in a community alongside others who have a desire to love their neighbors. John reminds us that this commandment is old and new (1st John 2:7).
Take a moment and combine these concepts. Jesus invites us alongside him to love our neighbors. As a church, we take this seriously. This Saturday we will be cleaning up at the Clothesline, a non-profit that clothes and gives to our community, and helping our own, much loved, Brenda Coppick with repairing gutters and getting her house ready for summer. So join us. Show up. Follow the example of Jesus and invite someone to come with you.
Lord, guide me this week as I seek to live an invitational and loving life. May my neighbor come to know you because I’ve lived your example. Amen.
