Loving Our Neighbor

Loving Our Neighbor

Aug 11, 2019

Passage: Luke 10:25-37

Preacher: Tim Akin

Series: The Church Out There



Main Idea:
As the church out there, our love for God is proven by our love for our neighbor.


Theological Truth: Love the Lord your God. 

  • Inheriting eternal life is not about what you have to do, it is about what Jesus has already done.

    • God’s law was not given to us for righteousness but to reveal our sin and to point us to a perfect Savior.
  • Jesus did for us what we can’t do for ourselves.
    • He Rescued us.
    • He Healed us.
    • He Purchased us.

Practical Application: Love your neighbor as yourself.

  • Loving our neighbor will be costly.

    • Christians are to do in this world what Jesus would do if He were physically here.
      • Money.
      • Time.
      • Energy.
      • Convenience.
  • Loving our neighbor will require compassion.

    • Mathew 9:36:When He saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd...

    • Christians are to demonstrate the limitless love of God to their neighbor.


This week, how can I be a true neighbor?
