Love Your Neighbour
“Love Your Neighbour”
When Jesus was asked what the greatest of all the commandments are, he made it clear that the first is to love God with everything we have and the second is like it, to love your neighbour as yourself. When we’ve experienced God’s love for us, it naturally flows into how we love and care for others.
We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person? Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. (1 John 3:16-18)
So, who’s your neighbour? It’s whoever you cross paths with. It’s the person you notice who is in need. They could be a person just like you, or maybe they’re very different from you, but everyone is someone that God loves.
God is already at work in the world, all around us. When you see God doing something – join in! When you see a need you can meet – take action! This is what it means to love your neighbour.
As you see needs in your own personal life, respond as God leads you. On this page, you’ll find opportunities where you can volunteer to serve those in our neighbourhoods. You’ll also find stories from others who are serving – and even share your own!
Here is a list of current opportunities we are aware of from our partners and others in the community.
