Living at the Intersection

Love Your Neighborhood bigWhat happens when individual believers and the church together live at the intersection of the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, of words and deeds, of proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel? I’ll tell you what…it’s dangerous and attractive faith.

This is the heart of what I talked about in my message this past weekend, “Living at the Intersection,” at Eastbrook Church. This was the second weekend in our series entitled “Love Your Neighborhood.”

The outline and video file for the message is below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here. You can access all the messages from the “Love Your Neighborhood” series here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on VimeoFacebook, Twitter and Instagram.



Two Major Thoroughfares of Life with God

The Great Commandment (Matthew 22:34-40)

  • “Love God”
  • “Love…as yourself”
  • “Love your neighbor as yourself”

The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20)

  • “as you go”
  • “make disciples”
  • “teaching them to obey”

Jesus at the Intersection

  • The prophetic message: salvation and incarnation (Matthew 1:20-23)
  • The beginnings of ministry: proclaiming and healing (Matthew 4:17, 23-25)
  • The interspersed message and action of Jesus (Matthew 1-28)

What Happens When We ‘Get It Wrong’

  • a look at lopsided Christianity

What Happens When We ‘Get It Right’

  • Living dangerously at the intersection
  • Living attractively at the intersection
