Jesus replied, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
Chris Brooks from Evangel Ministries in Detroit, Michigan came and shared his passion to the audience at Monday Morning’s Chapel Service. Opening up the Chapel service saying that, “all of God’s redemptive plan can be divided to two love stories.”
One of those love stories is about how God loves cities. God’s design for us is to go and serve cities. By serving cities we are able to go and bring nations into God’s Kingdom.
Chris focused on how Christians are called to go into hurting and cities. We as Christians need to be prayerful about what we are called to do, but also where we are called to go. We are all called to become missionaries for Christ. We are ready to go into a city to build up Christ’s work. “God has a way of disrupting our comfort so he can usher in purpose,” said Chris.
