Jesus Changes Everything (Part 2): Love in the Face of Loss
2 Corinthians 8:1-5 // Pastor Tim St. John

Key idea: Three ways we can be a church known by our love and not by our limits

1. Entrust your life to God

2. Identify opportunities to love

2 questions to ask to identify opportunities to love

  1. How are you doing?
  2. How can I pray for you?

3. Serve with joyful generosity

  • “Ministry is showing the love of Christ to others by serving them with all that we are.”
  • Examples of ways to serve during this season
    • Thank those you see serving
