Greatest Commandment and Great Commission

The Greatest Commandment
“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
-Matthew 22: 37-40
The Great Commission
“Jesus came to [the disciples] and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go out and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
-Matthew 28: 18-20

Hello everyone!

It’s been a long while since I’ve prepared for one of these emails and I’m thankful, for the opportunity to serve again.

You don’t have to dig deep into the news these days to come to the conclusion we live in a tumultuous time. And as a new parent, I’ve never been more aware of it. I often wonder how we will explain this hatred to a child who only sees wonder and beauty and love…and how we are going to protect her from it all.

It doesn’t matter how long or deep of a conversation andrew and I have about it, we always come to the conclusion that we can’t. We can try our best to guide and protect her, but we don’t have the ability to prevent her from seeing, experiencing and knowing evil. Because of sin, evil is to be expected. It’s going to be around whether we like it or not and really, sin lives within each of us. But thank God for his love and grace…rescuing us from ourselves. Even the most evil of people can be made pure and clean by the blood of Jesus. How amazing is that!

Because of Christ in us, we have hope that God is the beginning and the end. This means everything in between is under His care. Even as things around us are get more chaotic, be it personally or the terrifying scenes on the news, God will continue to be the light in the darkness. To that we shall cling.

Here are some great passages to remember…

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.”
‭‭John‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude. Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will grant you his blessing.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Now, who will want to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way. Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ. Remember, it is better to suffer for doing good, if that is what God wants, than to suffer for doing wrong!”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3:13-17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Well, it’s been a suuuuuuppper long time since I’ve written one of these emails, so happy to be joining you all this Sunday!


As I was working on this lineup my heart and mind were called to the deep theme of love. I think about this a lot – about how I express my love, how it is expressed to me, how I’m hopefully showing my daughter how to love others. Inevitably, as I contemplate these things, I think about God and how to know Him is to truly and definitively know love: “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” (1 John 4:8) His great love for us expressed in the way He vehemently pursues us like the one lost sheep is amazing to me. Imagine all that grace and mercy given every day, without hesitation, out of love. It’s beautiful and overwhelming.


With all that in mind, here’s our line up:

Mia’s Line Up: June 25, 2017

Lately I’ve been seeing modern churches do so much extra things to get the congregation excited about worship, whether it’s through games, strobe lights, confetti and all that grand stuff. And it’s pretty dangerous to believers who get used to that because it could potentially distract them from truly worshipping the Lord.


Sometimes, we need to be reminded that the best kind of worship can be simple, quiet and intimate. The truest kind of worship is when we give the Lord our full attention and our whole heart, emptying ourselves so He can fill us. I pray that when we worship individually on our own time and as a team, that we never lose sight of who were doing it for and why we do it. It’s all about Him and never about us.


“It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” (John 4: 23-24)
Here are the songs for this sunday:
