“‘Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?’
And he [Jesus] said to him,
‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
This is the great and first commandment.
And a second is like it:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.’”
Jesus said that above all else, loving God and loving our neighbors are the most important things we can do if we want to follow Him. If you have been a part of TRBC over the last few months, you have hopefully heard about Serve the City, and you have seen love in action. So what does love in action look like? It looks like…
And those are just the ones we know of!
This is love in action, and it is the spirit behind Serve the City. It is loving our neighbors in Jesus’ name; it is serving our City for God’s glory.
But Serve the City was not intended to be a one-time event, where we check off our “serve” box for the year then resume our normal lives. Instead, our prayer is that Serve the City will serve as a catalyst for serving the remainder of the year. Our hope is that TRBC members experienced the blessing of being a blessing to others, and they will be moved to compassion to continue serving our city throughout the year. Our ultimate goal is that God will be glorified by His people stepping out of their comfort zone to serve others, and that the people we served will be drawn to a saving knowledge of His son, Jesus Christ.
Check out just a few of the small group projects we did over the past few months. There are more projects on Facebook.
