From the sermon series: Love your neighbor.
God encourages Jeremiah while he is in exile to buy a piece of land and settle down. He is to seek the shalom of the city. Our city should be better off because the Christians that live here. A Street that has a Christian living on it should be better off because of the presence of that Christ follower. Paul says in the 1 Cor 9 passage that he will do whatever it takes to bring people to Christ. This may mean that we need to likewise adjust our schedules, priorities, attitudes, etc. to see God’s kingdom come in our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, etc.Video:
