Yep. That's our mission. To love God. To love people. And to serve both.
Why? Because Jesus gave us one job to do: To bring as many into the Kingdom as we can. God is not willing that ANY should perish, so why should we want that?
- Love God. "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment."
- Love People. "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."
- Serve Both. "As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God."
~1 Pet. 4:10
