Because love works! Because He first loved us… And because God commands us to “Love Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength – and to love OTHERS…!” (Mark 12:30 & 31, Luke 10:27, 1 John 3:23)
Is LOVE2020 a challenge, a resource-center, a movement, or . . . ?
I personally refer to LOVE2020 as a “Lifestyle”… because it begins in our hearts! So, if it begins with ME… then when I begin to practice Praying and Caring and Sharing the Love of Jesus with others, hearts are drawn to Him and lives are changed! It is contagious – and the movement spreads!
How would you coach a leader (congregation, small group, ministry team) to take ownership of LOVE2020 in their context?
It starts in each of us as individuals; a heart to pray – a heart to serve and care – a heart to love and share. There is NO context where this DOESN’T work!
How would you coach that leader to mobilize the persons they serve/disciple into the LOVE2020 movement?
The love of Jesus given freely & sincerely to anyone – anywhere – anytime! Just start! 🙂 At home… in your neighborhood … at work … it works!! The MORE we love, the EASIER it is to love, and the more we WANT to love!!!
