Today I was asked, "How can your church most impact your community for Jesus Christ?" After thinking a minute I answered with two words, "Love LOUD!" I believe that Bible clearly teaches us that if we will show the love of Christ we will win a hearing to share the love of Christ.

John MacArthur said, "You don't define love, you describe it by action." I believe that's true. People respond when they see love in action.

Scripture puts it like this: "Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven" (Matt 5:16).

"Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth" (1 Jn 3:18) for "As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead" (James 2:26).

Let us Love LOUD!

Love LOUD - 1 Cor 13

We showed this video during our Love LOUD kick off service.

This Sunday I will be introducing a new two year emphasis for our church called Love LOUD! This is based on 1 John 3:18: "Let us not love in word or talk but in actions and in truth."

Our church is looking for ways we can practically and visibly show the love of God in our community. In other words, we are looking for ministry ideas.

What ideas do you have? What have you done that worked well? What are some things that your church has done that worked well to show the love of God to those in your community?

I'd like to hear from you.
