Part 2 – Our Neighbors
John 1.35-51

Matthew 28.18-20:  rationale for all we do, resources we draw from

What’s the Message?
  • Jesus Christ died for sin and rose again.

What’s the Call?
  • To follow Jesus.

Priority – “first”
  • When Jesus is priority in our lives, His priorities are ours.
  • Neighbors are a priority because they are His priority.
  • Our priorities are reflected in our activity, its timing, and its consistency.

Pursuit – “found”
  • Staying in Jesus’ presence means going with Him in the pursuit of others.
  • Doubts are not landmines – they are opportunities.

o   Jesus is not afraid of your doubt or theirs.
o   The more we follow, the more we know.

Open your eyes.
  • When does a person feel connected?

o   When someone knows their name.
o   When they know someone’s name.
o   When they have a shared experience.

Don’t be a jerk!

Have a routine.

Give something.

Throw a party.

Pray like God is for real.
