The facts are these. 1. Our purpose is to love God + 2. Our purpose is to love others. Everything else that comes with our faith are just details. You may be a Christian who chooses to live in the details or you may decide your life is better spent just trying to master the first two purposes. If your like me loving others ‘as much as I love myself’ is about as difficult a task as they come. I believe that God knew how difficult it would be for us to love each other, but He also knew that His beautiful sacrifice would be the example that would stir men’s hearts to action. His love for me, the King of the unlovely, has stirred my heart. It is now my hearts great desire to love those that the world deems unworthy, unspecial, and unlovely. Today I was able to speak to the ministries director at the Panama City Rescue Mission about having our youth ministry help with some of the programs that they are providing. I pray that the youth of Eastgate will see through clear eyes the love that God saw when He looked down at us from His heavenly perch.
