Sermon Notes

The Bible makes it very clear that as the people of God we are directed continually to provide for, feed, assist, and preach the gospel to the poor. “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” (1 John 3:17-18). Our love for God and our love for others are paramount to our faith and walk in Christ. He additionally puts an even greater importance on the fatherless, the widow, those who do not have a defender, and the poor. When Jesus saw the needy, they were met with great compassion and sacrificial service. The proclamation of the gospel is always hand-in-hand with the demonstration of the Father’s love.
