We want to share with you the heart behind Be A Neighbor:
In Luke 27, Jesus answered that the key to eternal life is, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind;’ and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” The expert in the law then asked Jesus who is his neighbor, and Jesus answered with the story of the Good Samaritan
Be A Neighbor is all about activating you, our Church body, to be the church outside of the 4 walls of Victory. We are doing this by making outreach accessible to you in your daily life. Be a Neighbor is all about loving and serving the people that God has already placed in your life to reach.
We want to challenge you to choose someone in your life to reach out to. It could be your physical next-door neighbor, or it could be an acquaintance at work your children’s school. Whoever it is, we are going to partner with you to help reach that person. We’ll be sending out resources and tools that you can utilize to help you reach that neighbor of yours.
Jesus says we will be known as his disciples by the way we love each other. Let’s show that we are followers of Jesus by Being a Neighbor.
Recently at a Victory service, we sent our members home with loads of groceries to distribute to their neighbor. 80% of our members responded to the charge to reach their neighbor, helping us distribute over 2,700 loads of groceries to the Tulsa area. Stay tuned for more ways that we’ll be equipping you to Be a Neighbor.
He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ “
